Damage to second kiosk restricts toll road service NZTA advises


The NZ Transport Agency advises drivers using the Northern Gateway Toll Road on State Highway 1 north of Auckland that the remaining manual payment kiosk at Puhoi was destroyed overnight, and there is a restricted service operating for drivers wanting to pay their tolls by cash.

The Police have been notified about the incident, which appears to be an attempted theft.  The other machine at the isolated rural site was destroyed last month during a similar attack. 

The cash payment site for southbound motorists at Puhoi, has now been closed indefinitely. The NZTA is currently assessing options for security arrangements and replacement of machines at the site.

Three manual payment kiosks are still operating for northbound drivers at the BP service centre alongside SH1 at Silverdale.  

The NZTA reminds drivers that tolls remain payable on the road. Tolls can be paid in advance or up to five days after using the road, either on-line at link) or by phone at 0800 40 20 20. Drivers can pay for single or multiple trips before their journey, or up to five days after their travel.
