Waikanae-Otaki-Waikanae bus route change

From the Metlink website: “while construction is underway on the new Peka Peka to Ōtaki expressway, route 290 buses will be running a little earlier and making a slight route change on the Plateau Loop.

“The bus will now go via State Highway 1, Waitohu Valley Road, Dittmer Street, Te Manuao Road, and County Road before servicing the Plateau Loop in reverse to the normal direction. Temporary bus stops will be installed on the Plateau Loop on the opposite side of the road to the existing stops.”
