Motorway Works Latest

We are now at the stage where we need to connect parts of the new road with the existing motorway and State Highway 1 (SH1), this means there will be several road closures on SH1 in both the north and the south during November and December.At the Northern Connection the project team will carry out median island works and northbound widening works. To carry out this work safely we must close SH1 southbound and northbound from Kaipara Flats Road to Hudson Road, from 9pm to 5am. A detour will be in place via Kaipara Flats Road and Woodcocks Road.

At the Southern Connection the project team will undertake work from Johnstones Hill Tunnels (JHT) up to Pūhoi on the ITS gantry, signage installations and traffic management works. This means SH1 will be closed in both directions – Silverdale to Johnstones Hill Tunnels northbound and Pūhoi to Grand Drive southbound. The detour will be via Hibiscus Coast Highway or State Highway 16, from 10pm to 5am.

Our project team and Waka Kotahi Maintenance teams are once again working together to ensure that we capitalise on these closures and get as much work done as possible in order to minimise disruptions.Over Dimension vehicles will be able to get access through both of the work sites during these closures at specific times, if planned in advance. Heavy vehicles can use the detour routes or take State Highway 16.While we will try to limit disruption to traffic flows, we encourage you to plan your journey over this time and check the Waka Kotahi Journey Planner before heading out are working hard to complete this work before the busy holiday period, and we will be off the road mid-December and back early in the new year.
