State Highway 1 road closure – Silverdale to Pūhoi


Kia ora neighbour,
We are writing to let you know about an upcoming full motorway closure on State Highway 1 (SH1) from
Silverdale to Pūhoi.
Details of the upcoming works
On Sunday 12 June, SH1 will be closed between Silverdale and Pūhoi from 9:00pm – 5am, as we form
the second stage of the new road layout. A detour will be in place from Silverdale via Hibiscus Coast

Puhoi Junction Changes in May

Kia ora Neighbour,

We are writing to let you know that in late May we will move to stage four of the Southern Connection works. The Southern Connection is where State Highway 1 (SH1) north of the Johnstone Hill Tunnels, will eventually connect to the new safer, more reliable and resilient motorway.

Details of the upcoming works

On Sunday 22 May, SH1 northbound lanes will be closed between Silverdale and Pūhoi from 9:00pm – 5am as we form the next stage of the new road layout. A detour will be in place from Silverdale via Hibiscus Coast Highway.   From Monday 23 May 2022, northbound Hibiscus Coast Highway (HCH) traffic will merge onto a small section of the new motorway, travel across Arawhiti ki Ōkahu (viaduct) and exit at the new Pūhoi off-ramp onto Pūhoi Road. This will provide our crews with a protected working area while they complete the next phase of work.

On Sunday 12 June, SH1 will be closed between Silverdale and Pūhoi from 9:00pm – 5am as we form the second stage of the new road layout. A detour will be in place from Silverdale via Hibiscus Coast Highway.  From Monday 13 June 2022, northbound and southbound SH1 traffic will join HCH traffic on the new motorway alignment. Traffic heading north will exit from the Johnstone Hill Tunnels and seamlessly merge onto the viaduct. SH1 traffic heading south towards the tunnels will merge onto the new on-ramp, just after Pūhoi Road.

Traffic will remain in one lane in each direction and motorists will not be able to drive on the Pūhoi viaduct (Arawhiti ki Pūhoi) until the rest of the 18.5 km motorway opens. Should any of the above work be delayed due to weather or unforeseen circumstances, it will be rescheduled to the next available night. (maps of new layout attached)

Could Be Noisey

Dear Neighbour, 

To meet the project’s construction targets and minimise longer term disruption to the community, it is important that we utilise our time and resources wisely. This includes making the most of the available fine weather when we have it. To do this the pavements team are planning to work extended hours (up to 10pm) in some areas of the project on Monday to Fridays.

We will be working extended hours in designated areas on the alignment between Johnstones Hill Tunnel and Moir Hill Bridge. Work will continue periodically (as and when the weather allows)  until 10pm, in April 2021.  You may notice some noise during these works, however the project team will actively monitor this and every effort will be made to minimise disruptions.

Additionally, work on the alignment will continue over the easter holiday period in certain areas, this will allow us to make to the most of the predicted fine weather. 

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

Work Connecting SH1 to New Motorway

[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 few weeks, we will implement stage three of our Southern Connection works programme. The Southern Connection is where we will connect State Highway 1 (SH1) to the new motorway, north of the Johnstones Hill Tunnels. During stage two of the programme, we temporarily shifted traffic from southbound to the northbound lane. In mid-February, we will reverse this, transferring the northbound traffic to the existing southbound lane. These changes will ensure crews have a safe working area while they progress the works that will eventually connect it to the new motorway.

When will the work happen?

The new road layout on SH1, north of the Johnstones Hill Tunnels, will be in place on the morning of Tuesday 23 February, the changes will be in place for most of the year.

The road layout changes will be formed over a period of two nights on Sunday 21 February and Monday 22 February 2021 from 9.00pm – 5.00am. Once the new road layout is in place, works will continue for a further three nights from Tuesday 23 February to Thursday 25 February 2021, this will enable us to complete the Hibiscus Coast Highway tie-in works.

Stop/go traffic management will be in place on SH1 north of the tunnels while the five nights of works take place. This is to ensure the safety of our workers and road users, while limiting disruption to traffic flows as far as practicable.

Thank you for your patience and support while we complete this important work. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
