Northland highway work may impact on travel


The NZ Transport Agency advises drivers in Northland that state highway maintenance work is planned at several locations in the region over the next few weeks.

The work involves both resealing sections of highway, and more localised general rehabilitation work 

The NZTA says people should observe speed restrictions and be aware of possible changes in the road layout for the safety of themselves and their passengers, and for the safety of contractors upgrading the highway network. 

North of Whangarei

  • SH11 Whangae Transfer Station, Lemons Hill
  • SH1 Long Hill
  • SH1 Moerewa
  • SH10 Kaeo (north of the town)  

South of Whangarei

  • SH14 Tangowahine, Pukeatua
  • SH14 Mangarama   
  • SH1 Brynderwyn (north side of hill)
  • SH12 Junction, Tunnel Hill, Pretty Bush

This weekend, Whangarei’s SH1 Improvements from SH1/SH14 intersection to SH1/Selwyn Avenue involve lane restrictions.  The works may increase journey times. Central Avenue East is to be closed from the 6.00pm on Friday, 8 March, until 3.00pm on Monday, 11 March.

The NZTA also reminds drivers that work continues to upgrade SH1 through Moerewa.  Daytime diversions are in place which could impact on travel times.
