SH2 Wairarapa safety improvements
I'm pleased to say that the first three of a planned 21 raised pedestrian crossings between Masterton and Featherston are being constructed in June.
The safety improvement works will be completed in a series of day and night works in Masterton (SH2 by Jackson Street), Carterton (SH2 by Walnut Lane), and Featherston (SH2 by Daniell St) between 3 - 28th of June.
Work at the side of the road on the paths and crossing surrounds can be safely done during the day, with lanes on the road altered to allow room for the works while still letting motorists and cyclists travel in both directions.
Construction work across the road itself will take place at night under stop/go traffic control. Doing this work at night when traffic is light will minimise traffic delays and disruption to people’s daytime activities
For the safety of our workers, traffic management will be in place to ensure vehicles move slowly through the worksites. We advise road users to plan ahead using our journey planner, be courteous passing the worksites and stay up to date via our social media.
If we have weather delays, we will postpone the works until the next available fine day.
