Road repairs on two Whāngārei highways to start on Monday


The left hand southbound lane on State Highway 1 at Western Hills Drive will be closed just south of Manse Street for repairs and resurfacing. The other southbound lane will remain open.

The daytime work will take about five days, with the final surface laid later in the month.

Road repairs will also start Monday night on State Highway 14, just west of the intersection with SH1. The work will be done overnight from 9pm to 5.30am, with the traffic lights at Hospital Road switched off and manual traffic control in place.

This first stage of repairs is expected to take about 10 days, with the final surface laid later in the month.

The Transport Agency asks motorists to be patient and keep to the posted speed limits while travelling through these areas to ensure the safety of the workers and all road users.
