Motorway Construction Postponed for COVID19 Alert Period

Dear Neighbour,

As you know the Prime Minister announced yesterday that the COVID-19 alert level has been raised to Level Three and will become Level Four from 23:59 hours on Wednesday 25 March 2020.

This means we need to stop non-essential services for a period of four weeks. From today crews across the country will be working to close down Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency construction sites, including the Pūhoi to Warkworth construction site.

Our priority at this time is to ensure that while we close down the site, it remains a safe place for you to travel near or alongside. We will keep safe traffic management in place, as well as appropriate environmental controls.

The project shut down includes a cessation in the projects ability to meet face to face with residents and the wider project community for the time being. The projects 0508 number and info email address will continue to operate throughout this period.

For any project related stakeholder and community queries please feel free to contact the team on 0508 7295 4636 or

Thank you for your understanding and respect for others welfare as we navigate these unprecedented challenges.

Ngā mihi

Motorway Work: Take Care on Thursday Jan 9th

Good afternoon,

Happy New year and welcome to 2020. I hope you had an enjoyable holiday break. 

Last year I mentioned that our structures team would be installing panels at the Arawhiti ki Pūhoi bridge at Abutment G (south side of Pūhoi Road).  

Due to the unfavourable weather we had that week some of this work was delayed and the last four panels need to be installed.  The process will be the same as last year.

On the Thursday 9 January for safety reasons, a stop/go will be in place at the beginning of Pūhoi Rd when the crane is working and the trucks are turning into our SAP10 entrance. This will happen intermittently, as and when required only. A crane will arrive on site at approximately 6.20am but works won’t start until after 9.00am. 

Please slow down and take care when turning into Pūhoi Road from SH1 as there may be a stop go in place during this time. 

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

Kind regards

Roslyn Prictor
