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 still be able to travel through the area until this time.
The Ara Tūhono – Pūhoi to Warkworth team is planning to start work on the widening of Pūhoi Road intersection this month, in preparation for constructing the new motorway’s on and off ramps. The works includes earthworks, drainage and pavement works. For safety reasons and to minimise the disruption to the travelling public, the work will be carried out at night and will require traffic management.
Work on the south side of Pūhoi Road is set to start on Sunday 14 March 2021 and last for two months, continuing until mid-May 2021. Work will take place at night from Sunday to Thursday between 7:00pm and 4:00am. Please note, all work dates are weather dependant.
Stop/go traffic management will be in place on Pūhoi Road while these night works happen (as per the attached map).
We acknowledge the inconvenience of these works to neighbours and motorists and thank you for your patience and understanding while we complete this important work. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
Don’t forget to bring your prize grown tomatoes (or singular tomato) down to the village market this Sunday 28th for the infamous Puhoi Annual Tomato Competition (of course we never know quite what the judging criteria are, and they’re probably at the whim of randomly the nominated judge – but that makes it more fun)!
Courtesy of our very own Sarah Churchhouse, Forest of Bohemia Crafting Studio will be running a workshop at the Puhoi Hall, for a Sunday afternoon of creativity. This is designed to help you visually manifest your dreams and goals for 2021!
NX2 would like to let you know that Pūhoi Road will be closed for two more nights next week. Due to the heavy rain and high winds experienced early in the week, our team need more time to complete the remaining works on the Arawhiti ki Pūhoi viaduct.
A small section of Pūhoi Road will be closed for two nights on Sunday 21 February and Monday 22 February 2021, between 9.30pm to 4.00am. The dates are weather dependent and may be postponed if necessary. For safety reasons and to minimise the disruption to the travelling public, the work will be carried out at night.
Signposted detours and traffic management will be in place. As the detours will add a considerable amount of time to your journey, we encourage you to plan your travel for outside the closure hours, where possible.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused during the closure and thank you for your patience while we complete this important work..
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.
