Roundabout operating at Puketona Junction
The roundabout will be operating at the intersection of SH10 and SH11 from this week. The team has made a big push to link up the new roundabout structure with the bridge near Te Ahu Ahu Road. Final surfacing and other finishing work will be done in the new year.
We want to thank road users for their patience as we worked on the narrow link between the bridge and the roundabout.
We will have a lowered speed limit of 50km/h in place over the holidays, with temporary safety measures (such as road cones) to help keep traffic flowing safely.
The closure of SH1 in the Mangamuka Gorge continues to have an impact on SH10 traffic volumes but the newly operating roundabout will help reduce travel delays through the area.
