Bayfair traffic delays one off

Delays to motorists near Bayfair shopping complex were a one off inconvenience, says Tauranga City Council transport operations manager Martin Parkes.

“We had to seal the road yesterday and for us to do that, we had to alter traffic management and extend it to Girven Road,” says Martin.
“It was to ensure traffic flowed in a safe manner because if you left all the lanes open, it would have created safety issues,” says Martin.
Many motorists expressed anger over long delays they faced as a result of the construction of a shared pedestrian and cycle pathway on Matapihi Road on Thursday, July 23.
Martin says construction of the pathway began two months ago and is nearly complete.
