Traffic management will remain in place to keep traffic flowing.

Weather has delayed work on the pavement undercut, which will now start after Labour Weekend between the Four Square and the Tiki Road intersection.

Every week, we're profiling a business in Coromandel Town that is affected by the roading improvements. This week we spoke to business mentor Pamela Grealey from Coromandel Pink Pelican.

Pamela Grealey has had years of experience in business mentoring and her main goal is helping businesses achieve their goals. She has been running her business in New Zealand for about nine years and was previously a business mentor in England. Pamela is also experienced in project management, which is what sparked her direction to lead and mentor other people to make their businesses better.

She is currently involved in the Coromandel and Beyond project that is working on increasing tourism numbers by helping people in the Colville community create a business. She is also part of the New Zealand Business Mentors group.

"I work with leading organisations across the private and public sectors. Our extensive experience and hands-on skills allow us to address problems as no one else can," says Pamela.

On the upgrade works: "I think this is an amazing project, the communication has been outstanding which is key to a successful project. The stakeholder meetings allow anyone from the public to express their concerns and be heard. The process itself has been good and I think the town should be excited to see this project completed," she says.
