Project aiming to reduce travel times on State Highway 2 in Tauranga now finished
The NZ Transport Agency and Western Bay of Plenty District Council say adequate data has been gathered and the trial on State Highway 2 near Te Puna is now complete.
The trial was carried out between Clarke Road and Te Puna Station Road on most weekdays from Monday 14 May. It involved partially closing Te Puna Station Road.
Transport Agency Bay of Plenty Journey Manager, Nigel D’Ath, says the trial was carried out to see if it would reduce the number of people using the side roads and hopefully lead to improved and more consistent travel time.
“We now have enough information to see if the trial was successful. However, we still need to analyse this data before we get in contact with the community to let them know the outcome and any potential changes.
“We’d like to thank people for their patience and their feedback throughout the trial,” Mr D’Ath says.
The trial was investigated as a minor improvement.
