Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency is encouraging motorists to travel with care through Piarere, with Intersection Speed Zone signs approaching the intersection of State Highway 1 and State Highway 29 out of operation following road resurfacing in the area.

Intersection Speed Zones are electronic signs that detect when someone is turning into or out of a side road and temporarily reduce the legal speed limit on the state highway (usually from 100 km/h to 60km/h or 70km/h). They also do this when someone is crossing the state highway from a side road.

The signs, which were installed earlier this year, are expected to be reinstated on or before 10 December. The components within the road surface that trigger the electronic signage needed to be removed to facilitate the road resurfacing.

The Transport Agency thanks motorists in advance for exercising care through this area while the Intersection Speed Zone signs are out of operation.
