Traffic flow at Puketona a vital concern
Work on improving safety at the Puketona Junction intersection of SH10 and SH11 is picking up pace. We've installed site offices, set up amenities for our crew and made other preparations for construction of a roundabout.
We are aware the emergency closure of SH1 in the Mangamuka Gorge has resulted in increased traffic on SH10 and travel delays across the highway network at peak travel times.
We are doing our best to ensure traffic can keep moving through our site by installing temporary steel safety barriers and re-painting road markings. The barriers will create a safe area for our crew and provide a safe distance between construction activities and road users. Once the barriers are in place we will be able get on with constructing the roundabout without restricting traffic flow.
