Poihipi Road widening
Work has been carried out on a one kilometre stretch 1.5 kilometres from the Taupo end of the road, and on another 500 metre section about four kilometres from town. The work was to improve safety by widening the road and improving its surface in key areas.
The work started in February and was completed in June 2016.
The work to improve safety on key cycle and heavy traffic routes was signalled in the Long-term Plan in 2015. Contractor Inframax Limited carried out the work.
