New roundabout takes shape at Puketona
The outline and some features of the new roundabout are clearly visible now at the intersection of SH10 and SH11. Weather plays a role in the pace of our work and settled conditions recently have helped us make good progress. Steel safety barriers continue to separate highway traffic on temporary roading from workers and site activities.
We have scheduled some surfacing work for early December in order to make the roundabout operational for the Christmas and New Year break. Temporary safety measures (such as road cones) will be helping keep traffic moving safely during the holidays.
The emergency closure of SH1 in the Mangamuka Gorge is still having an impact on SH10 traffic volumes through the intersection. We continue to do our best to avoid contributing to travel delays at our work site.
