The second scheduled closure of State Highway 29 over the Kaimai Range begins on Sunday over five nights.

NZ Transport Agency Waka Kotahi said in a statement the closures were needed to undertake asphalt renewals and other maintenance such as clearing drains, sign maintenance and road marking.

The closure points on the western side (Waikato) of the Kaimai Range are at the SH29/24 and SH29/28 intersections and on the eastern side (Bay of Plenty) at the SH29/Cambridge Road intersection.

The closures will be from 8pm to 3.30am each night from March 17 to March 21.

Emergency services will have access at all times, residents can access their property from the relevant side of the closure.

The agency said a full closure was safer for their crews and road users.

Closures may be rescheduled in the event of bad weather.
