Waha Kotahi has provied the following information regaring re-sealing of the highway from Pukerua Bay to Plimmerton. Not that you will not be able to turn into Airlie Rd when heading towards Plimmerton but will need to divert to the Plimmerton Roundabout and head north.
ROADWORKS: Laying a new surface of chipseal on the state highway
WHERE AND WHEN:
State Highway 59, 2 separate sections south of Pukerua Bay to Plimmerton roundabout
Monday 30 October daytime, subject to postponement because of weather
- 7am – 10am approx: a short 100m section of the 2 northbound lanes beside the Airlie Road intersection
- 10am – 4.30pm approx: a 1km section of the 2 southbound lanes from the Weigh Station to Plimmerton roundabout
7am-10am: AIRLIE ROAD – HOW TO ACCESS THE INTERSECTION OR AVOID IT WHILE WORKS ARE TAKING PLACE
- No right turn into Airlie Road if heading south from Pukerua Bay
o Either continue south to Plimmerton roundabout, turn back north and use the slip lane into Airlie Road
o Or use the main access to access Plimmerton at the Steyne Avenue traffic lights
- Access north or south onto the state highway from Airlie Road
- Left or right turns – traffic controllers will stop and hold vehicles until it is safe to wave you through
- Or travel through Plimmerton to the southern exit at Steyne Avenue lights
10am-4.30pm: SOUTHBOUND LANES FROM PLIMMERTON WEIGH STATION TO ROUNDABOUT
- One lane closed for works, traffic uses the other lane beside the works at restricted speed limit
UP TO 2 DAYS FOLLOWINGTHE WORKS:
- A temporary speed restriction will be in place following the works while the chips bed into the new seal
- 30km/h is the usual speed at first as this slower speed helps protect your car and others from loose chip
- The speed limit will rise as traffic helps settle the chip into the new seal on the road surface
