New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) staff will work closely with the Whakatane District Council to find ways of easing traffic congestion issues during a planned three-month maintenance closure of the Peketahi Bridge at Taneatua. An NZTA briefing on the re-decking of the bridge provided at last week's Council Projects and Services Committee meeting indicated a planned start to the project before Christmas, with the closure extending until mid-March 2017. The closure will require all SH2 traffic to be re-routed through Whakatane via the Landing Road bridge, Hinemoa Street, Arawa Road and Taneatua Road.
