A new roundabout in Te Puna started construction work today — a blessing was held by NZTA near Te Puna Memorial Hall. The new roundabout is a part of improvement of SH2 from Katikati to Tauranga, and will ease the difficulties for local residents to turn into SH2. Accommodation Te Puna will get more chance to be seen by drivers and much easier to turn in or get out. NZTA will put a higher better acoustic fence for the motel to reduce the noise as well.
