New additions to Puketona Junction
We are currently constructing the SH11 leg of the intersection which involves rebuilding old road to meet new roading at the roundabout. This section of road will be covered with loose metal at times and the lane layout will shift regularly as layers of metal are laid, compacted and stabilised. Sealing the new road and applying fresh line markings is planned for late March.
We are also pouring concrete for traffic islands at the roundabout. We ask road users to be mindful of our crew and to take extra care travelling through these works.
Drainage work continues across the entire site, including a pipe and retaining wall structure (pictured above) to assist drainage under the highway. We are also working on the western side of SH10 where swales (drains) are being dug and the area is being prepared for the reinstatement of grass verges.
If you have any concerns or queries about upcoming works, please call Mel Norris from Fulton Hogan on 0800 577 623. Road users can also contact Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency at any time on 0800 44 44 49.
