SH2 Waihī to Ōmokoroa Safety Project - What’s happening?
Section 4: Athenree Road to Tanners Point Road
Four retaining walls have been constructed here, with another four to be constructed ahead of the main works taking place.
Some of these have been challenging to build due to difficult underlying ground conditions, but the team is working to overcome these challenges.
Retaining wall construction will require single lane closure at times to allow our work crews to carry out this work safely and efficiently.
Road widening works will continue between Athenree Road and Tanners Point Road over the next few months. This includes earthworks, drainage, service relocations, kerb and channels and pavement.
Section 5: Tanners Point Road to Kauri Point Road
Power and watermain relocations are almost complete in this section with final switch overs in October. Following this, you will not see much work in this section until approximately March 2022.
Section 8: Sharp Road to Sargent Drive
Work to move the power and watermain to a new shared utilities trench further from the road is almost complete. Main works are well underway in this area.
In addition to the project, our maintenance teams will carry out pavement rehabilitation works in the Thompsons Track area later in the year (November or December). This will be followed by rehabilitation works in the Sargent Road area in February next year.
