Overnight resurfacing at SH1 Wairakei roundabout - Tuesday 8 February update


Contractors will be undertaking overnight resurfacing on State Highway 1 at the Wairakei roundabout next week.

Tuesday 8 February 2022 update

The resurfacing work on State Highway 1 between Kauri Road and the Wairakei roundabout, which was due to take place between  Tuesday 8 and Thursday 10 February, has also been postponed and will now take place between Sunday 13 and Tuesday 15 February.

Starting Sunday (23 January), works will take place over five nights between 6pm and 6am to replace the road surface of the roundabout and the section between the roundabout and the Wairakei River bridge.

Contractors will then return after Waitangi weekend to complete the surface on the northern side, between Kauri Drive and the roundabout, from 8–11 February.

During work hours there will be four-way Stop/Go traffic management and a 30km/h temporary speed limit in place.

Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency thanks motorists for their patience while we undertake this important work to improve the state highway network.

Plan ahead for a safe, enjoyable journey. Keep up to date with:
