Temporary roading at Puketona keeps traffic moving
Earthworks and drainage for temporary roading at the Puketona Junction intersection of SH10 and SH11 are currently in progress. The temporary roading will allow safe areas for working on constructing the new roundabout. When completed, temporary steel safety barriers will safely separate traffic on the temporary roading from construction areas and other work activity.
The emergency closure of SH1 in the Mangamuka Gorge is having an impact on traffic volumes on SH10 through Puketona Junction. We have adjusted work plans to avoid contributing to travel delays on the highway and keep traffic moving through the site, including reducing our use of stop/go traffic control.
We are ensuring public access to business premises at the intersection is maintained, including to the Junction Cafe, Better Shedz, Bay of Islands Country Lodge Motel and Top Energy. These businesses are remaining open throughout the entire construction period.
