Temporary roading switch made at Puketona
Traffic on SH10 and SH11 has been switched successfully onto a new temporary intersection, allowing traffic to flow while we make intersection improvements.
Safe areas for workers constructing the new roundabout have been created behind temporary steel safety barriers separating traffic on the temporary roading from our work activity. Businesses at the intersection remain open and we will ensure access to their premises is maintained throughout construction.
The emergency closure of SH1 in the Mangamuka Gorge continues to have an impact on SH10 traffic volumes through Puketona Junction. We have adjusted work plans to avoid contributing to travel delays on the highway, including limiting the times of day we use stop/go traffic control.
