The Ara Tūhono – Pūhoi to Warkworth team is planning to start work on resealing part of Pūhoi Road/intersection under the Arawhiti ki Pūhoi viaduct in June, in preparation for constructing the new motorway’s on and off ramps. For safety reasons and to minimise the disruption to the travelling public, the work will be carried out at night and will require the road to be closed.
Night-time road closure – Pūhoi Road
A small section of Pūhoi Road will be closed for up to eleven nights, from Tuesday 08 June 2021 to Thursday 24 June 2021, between 9.30pm and 4am, (no work will take place on Friday and Saturday nights). Signposted detours and traffic management will be in place. Please note the dates are weather dependent and may be postponed if necessary.
We will keep you updated if anything changes, or the weather allows the road to stay open. The traffic management team may set up road cones and signage from 7pm, but Pūhoi Road will not be closed until 9.30pm. You will be able to travel through the area until this time. During the Pūhoi Road closure, signposted detours will be in place. As the detours will add a considerable amount of time to your journey, we encourage you to take care and plan your travel for outside the closure hours, where possible.
Please don’t hesitate to contact our communications team if you have any questions.

PUHOI HERITAGE MUSEUM NEWS
Attached below is the latest issue of the Puhoi Heritage Museum’s regular monthly update, including a fascinating item on the former Schollum house removed by motorway works from its old site to the north of the State Highway 1 bridge and now beautifully restored by its new owners, also Schollums, on their Pukapuka farm.But, most heart wrenching for me was the 1872 letter from old Caspar Plescher to his son, Vincent, on the latter’s migration to New Zealand, giving news of the old friends and relatives left behind in the Bohemian homeland. This, surely, would be guaranteed to make the tears flow on its receipt.Please take especial note of the notice of the Puhoi Heritage Museum Society’s Annual General Meeting, directly below, with our gratitude to the museum society for ensuring the continuation of the history of our Bohemian ancestors.
Puhoi Heritage Museum AGM Sunday 30th May 2.00 p.m. in Museum Records Room.
And welcome to new residents Sean McKinney and Kathryn Piper of 59 Lenzen Road – hope you are settling in well.
And , especially since the Puhoi Village Market is in recess now until September, please keep in mind our fortnightly produce swap (no money involved) at 4pm at the band Rotunda reserve. Tomorrow, Sunday, May 16, is the next one. People bring along almost anything produced and tradeable – preserves, plant books, fruit, eggs, seedlings, indoor plants – I came away with some sugarcane plants – do you think they will survive in our climate?
And here’s a plug for our Mahurangi West neighbours and a lovely fundraising function they are organising for the end of this month to support their Te Muri crossing initiative.
