Latest Road Closures For Motorway Related Works Update for Puhoi
Posted on February 21, 2020
This is the current road closure list for roadwork closures and works , with info supplied from NX2. Note that the signage boards etc. around the works may not reflect this list – as in an arrangement with NX2 they will open the road/implement stop/go when possible to allow locals to come and go when gaps in the works allow, letting us know at PuhoiNZ as frequently as possible, but they can’t keep the public signage up to date.
Puhoi’s a pretty good village, and so the team at Puhoi Beer thought a pretty good village really deserved a pretty good beer. And just quietly, it’s not bad at all.
The first beer from Puhoi Beer team is called Puhoi Pils – a kiwi version of the classic Czech pilsner. Inspired by the original Bohemian settlers of Puhoi, Puhoi Pils is a drinkable lager with a bunch of character.
If they were trying to impress you they might crap on about Puhoi Pils being a mix of NZ and classic Czech noble hops that provide floral, citrusy, and spicy flavours on a light malt base with subtle bready and toasty characters. But they wouldn’t want to beer-bore you so they’d just say it’s bloody tasty.
Puhoi Pils also goes well with sunshine, tall tales, good yarns, and fish ‘n’ chips wrapped in newspaper. Your first one tastes pretty good, and the second’s not bad either.
Only the finest of establishments are chosen to lovingly pour Puhoi Pils. So far that’s the Puhoi Pub, the Puhoi Sports Club and a few others. But keep your eyes peeled
Our structures team will be installing concrete barriers and service ducting on the Arawhiti ki Pūhoi viaduct across Pūhoi Road. For safety reasons and to minimise disruption to motorists the work will be completed at night. A small section of Pūhoi Road will be closed for five nights, from Sunday 29 November to Thursday 03 December, between 9:30pm to 4:00am. Signposted detours and traffic management will be in place. Please note the dates are weather dependent and may be postponed if necessary.
During the Pūhoi Road closure, signposted detours will be in place. As the detours will add a considerable amount of time to your journey, we encourage you to plan your travel for outside the closure hours, where possible.
On Tuesday 24 November and Wednesday 25 November traffic managementwill be in place on Pūhoi Road intermittently between 9am and 3pm, while the trucks delivering the precast concrete barriers are turning into Pūhoi Road and unloading on site. There will be up to four deliveries per day.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused during the closure and thank you for your understanding while we complete this important work.
Over the next two weeks, the team will be carrying out works Sunday to Thursday nights only in preparation for the road layout changes. Traffic management will be in place from 8:00pm – 4:00am and there will be an overnight closure of the northbound tunnel. The Hibiscus Coast Highway will remain open in each direction during the work.
Due to the wet weather we have experienced over the last week, we now need additional night shifts to complete the works .The road layout changes will now take effect on Friday 20 November.
What does this mean for you?
We ask that drivers keep to the temporary speed limit for the safety of our work crews and road users, drive to the conditions and don’t be distracted by work activity. Motorists may experience longer travel times during this time. We advise planning ahead by allowing extra travel time especially during the weekend and public holidays.
Please don’t hesitate to contact our communications team if you have any questions.
