Night time roadworks for safety improvements on SH1 in Dome Valley


Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency advises there will be night time road works on State Highway 1 just north of Warkworth, on Thursday, 14 May.

There will be stop/go traffic management with the road reduced to one lane from 7:00PM to 5:00AM.

Road crews are installing piles on a retaining wall opposite the turnoff to L Phillips Road (Sheepworld) as part of work to widen State Highway 1. 

During the work, the stop/go crew will temporarily stop traffic to ensure the safety of the work crews and road users. They’ll monitor the queues and minimise wait times as much as possible. 

Waka Kotahi apologises for any inconvenience and advises road users to plan ahead and allow extra time for their journeys. The work is being done at night to minimise disruption for freight movements and the travelling public.

The team will maintain physical distancing and use additional protective clothing in line with strict COVID-19 health and safety protocols.

The planned safety improvements on SH1 through the Dome Valley include widening the centre line and road side shoulders, adding right hand turn bays and installing flexible road safety barriers.
