Creating a safer, more sustainable roads system
CPB Contractors delivered the second and final phase of the NZ Transport Agency project, the State Highway 2 Baypark to Bayfair Link Upgrade in Tauranga.
The project supported economic growth in the region by improving the route to the Port of Tauranga and creating a safer and faster roads network.
Our team focused on delivering an efficient and effective works program using proven traffic management and innovative construction methodologies to minimise disruption and maximise safety for road users.
Our approach included increased opportunities for local workers and businesses, and socially-ethical partnering arrangements.
Design and construct works included:
- The building of two flyovers, directing State Highway 29A traffic over the East Coast railway line and Te Maunga intersection; and directing State Highway 2 traffic up and over the Maunganui-Girven roundabout;
- Upgrading the existing Maunganui-Girven intersection;
- Replacing the Te Maunga roundabout with an elevated interchange; and
- Improved walking and cycling connections between Baypark and Bayfair.
The NZ Transport Agency delivered the project on behalf of the New Zealand Government.
