Latest Roadworks

[Via NX2]
The full list of upcoming works is at Latest Road Closures For Motorway Related Works Update for Puhoi

Dear Neighbour,

Over the next two weeks, the team will be carrying out works Sunday to Thursday nights only in preparation for the road layout changes. Traffic management will be in place from 8:00pm – 4:00am and there will be an overnight closure of the northbound tunnel. The Hibiscus Coast Highway will remain open in each direction during the work.

Due to the wet weather we have experienced over the last week, we now need additional night shifts to complete the works .The road layout changes will now take effect on Friday 20 November.

What does this mean for you?

We ask that drivers keep to the temporary speed limit for the safety of our work crews and road users, drive to the conditions and don’t be distracted by work activity. Motorists may experience longer travel times during this time. We advise planning ahead by allowing extra travel time especially during the weekend and public holidays.

Please don’t hesitate to contact our communications team if you have any questions.

Road layout changes on State Highway 1 near Johnstones Hill Tunnels

[Via NX2]
The full list of upcoming works is at Latest Road Closures For Motorway Related Works Update for Puhoi

Work is beginning on an integral and important piece of work within the Ara Tūhono – Pūhoi
to Warkworth Motorway Project requiring significant road layout changes north of the
Johnstones Hill Tunnels.
What is happening at the Southern Connection?
The Southern Connection works involve a four-stage construction sequence to connect State
Highway 1 (SH1) north of the Johnstones Hill Tunnels to the new motorway. The works will
enable the widening of SH1 north of the tunnels where it will eventually connect to the
section of new motorway still under construction.
Stage 2 requires SH1 southbound traffic north of the tunnel, to be temporarily transferred to
the existing northbound lane (refer map below). This will ensure the safety of our workers
undertaking these critical works and commuters using the existing roading network, whilst
limiting disruption to traffic flows, as far as practicable.
When and where will we be doing this work?
For the past couple of years, we’ve been building the new alignment alongside SH1. Now
we’re working to bring the two together. The new road layout on SH1, north of the
Johnstones Hill Tunnels will be in place from 10 November 2020 until late May 2021.
The road layout changes will be formed over a period of two nights on 8-9 November 2020
from 8:00pm – 4:00am. Stop/go traffic management will be in place to enable this to happen
safely.
Safety is our highest priority and the reduced speed limit of 60km/h will remain in place for
the duration of the works. While we will try to limit disruption to traffic flows, road users
should plan ahead and allow more time for their journey.
What does this mean for you?
We ask that drivers keep to the temporary speed limit for the safety of our work crews and
road users, drive to the conditions and don’t be distracted by work activity. Motorists may
experience longer travel times during this time. We advise planning ahead by allowing
extra travel time especially during the weekend and public holidays.

Thank you for your patience and support while we complete this important work. To help
plan for peak time travel, visit the Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency journey planner at
www.journeys.nzta.govt.nz. Alternative routes are available via Hibiscus Coast Highway and
State Highway 16.

Dear Neighbour,

We are writing to update you on our extended work hours during the summer season.  Starting this week, we may be working on site from 6.00am – 8.00pm, Monday to Sunday in some isolated areas across the whole project.  In the Pūhoi area we have a lot of work coming up and I will keep you updated on this as the work happens. In the next two weeks you will see people working on top of the Pūhoi Viaduct. This team will be doing steel fixing, this is relatively quite work and doesn’t require machinery. 

We also need to lift the remaining girders/beams, place the deck panels and then pour the concrete onto them, we also have work planned for the Pūhoi on and off ramp and the Pūhoi Road intersection as a whole. With some of the works planned, you may experience a small increase in noise levels (but still within our consent conditions). We will try to limit any disruption but do thank you for your patience while we get this important work done.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

NX2: Busy Summer Sundays

With summer just around the corner and bulk earthworks starting to kick off, it is important that the Ara Tūhono – Pūhoi to Warkworth Project utilise our time and resources wisely. This includes making the most of the increased daylight hours and warmer weather. To do this we are planning to work extended hours in some areas of the project and will also be working on Sunday’s, weather permitting. 

From Sunday 13 September 2020, we will be carrying out intermittent Sunday works at various locations from Johnstones Hill Tunnel (Southern Connection) and Tapuwae o Kahumatamomoe (Moir Hill Road bridge). The projects working hours on Sundays will typically take place between 7:30am and 6:00pm, and will continue until the end of the 2020/21 summer earthworks season.

Some of you may notice noise and vibration during these works, however the project team will actively monitor this and every effort will be made to minimise disruptions. The Sunday works will be designed to comply with Auckland Council requirements for noise and vibration and our Environmental Team will be monitoring this.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
