NZTA chipsealing in central to south Greytown - Tues night 15 January

NZTA would like to advise you of road surface improvements scheduled for State Highway 2 Main Street from central to south Greytown on Tuesday night 15 January.


About 700 metres of highway from Wood Street to just south of Humphries Street.


Tuesday 15 January, 6.30pm-5.30am.

Our traffic controllers will start setting up cones and signs from about 5pm. Work may start earlier or later than 6.30pm, depending on the amount of traffic.


What's being done and why?

The road will be sprayed with a treatment developed to prevent cracks in the road. It will then be surfaced with urban chipseal which includes a very small chip that makes it quieter than rural surfaces.

Thank you message from NZTA

Thank you for your patience while we make these road improvements in your community.
Capital Journeys, the joint venture of WSP Opus Consultants and Fulton Hogan that maintains the region’s state highways, is undertaking the work on behalf of the Transport Agency.

Any queries, please contact Aaron MacArthur, Chipsealing Manager, phone 027 243 4001, email

Tips for driving on freshly laid chipseal

It can be unnerving to hear loose chips rattling under your vehicle. Driving smoothly at the temporary speed limit without sudden braking will provide the safest conditions for your car and our workers.
