Major works on Stage 2 of the Plenty Road Upgrade are now complete and all new lanes on Plenty Road between Bush Boulevard and Bridge Inn Road are open.

We’ve added lanes in each direction and upgraded 12 intersections between Bush Boulevard and Bridge Inn Road.

Bridge Inn Road intersection

The Bridge Inn Road intersection has been upgraded from a roundabout to an intersection with traffic lights.

Crews worked 98 shifts over 49 days to get the Bridge Inn Road intersection open as quickly as possible. We clocked up over 1176 construction hours while each side of the intersection was closed between 23 July and 31 August. Works to upgrade the intersection included:

  • earthworks, new drainage and kerbing
  • relocating underground services
  • installing traffic signals and street lighting
  • asphalting and line marking
  • building shared walking and cycling paths.
