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

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.

or our 24/7 freephone: 0508 P2WK INFO (0508 7295 4636) if you have any questions.

Great Opportunity: Be A Sponsor for the Defining Puhoi Event!

What a peculiar year 2020 has been thus far, with the recent change of ownership at the pub and drop of levels we are putting together our ‘Annual Wood Chopping Carnival’, on the bottom lawn at the Puhoi Pub on Saturday 9th January 2021 . Bernie and Gary, former owners of Northridge Country lodge, in Silverdale are the new owners of the pub, with their three daughters and one son all involved with running the pub, making the pub another family run business.

We are in our 16th year of holding this event at our establishment and with huge help from the Puhoi Axemen Club and of course sponsors, we have all made it possible for the general public, overseas visitors and media who otherwise may not know how entertaining and important this sport event is to our area.

The aim for 2021 is to make it more exciting and beneficial to the viewers, be prepared for the ‘boys from Naki’, pitching their best against ‘Team Puhoi’.

Most of our sponsors give a monetary donation, from $100 upwards, while others give product promoting their business. These are divided into prizes of (product and/or prize money) for each chop. Each chop consists of four place getters across 22 events.

Sponsor Tiers

Tier 1 – $500 cash donation

Tier 2 – $300 cash donation

Tier 3 – $200 cash donation

All sponsors can have their business signage/advertising banners displayed on the day, present the prize for their chop as well as attend our sponsors dinner to be held from 630pm.

If you are interested in being part of this unique event, please contact us by email noting which tier or in what other capacity you would like to  be involved, we will then provide all the details.

To Note;

·       Should we move up levels and need to cancel our event, we will provide full refunds on donations and product.

·       We may follow this up with a phone call early next week.

Thank you for your support.
