SH16 Northwestern Motorway improvements - community
information days

|

This weekend, residents interested in planned improvements to Auckland's Northwestern Motorway (State Highway 16) are invited to attend the first of four community information days being held by the NZ Transport Agency.

This weekend, residents interested in planned improvements to Auckland’s Northwestern Motorway (State Highway 16) are invited to attend the first of four community information days being held by the NZ Transport Agency (NZTA).
 
On Saturday 26 September, people can call in at Pasadena Intermediate School, Moray Rd, Pt Chevalier anytime from 11am-3pm. NZTA representatives will be on hand to answer any questions people may have about the planned project.

The project, which helps complete a Western Ring Route for Auckland, involves staged works from St Lukes Road to Westgate. The works will add an extra lane in each direction, with a further lane westbound between Great North Road and Rosebank Road, improve motorway shoulders for buses, raise the causeway and widen and extend the cycleway. 

“The project will help traffic flow, improve safety and allow this important link to function better. We encourage local residents to come along to an open day to meet the project team and view the planned improvements,” said NZTA Regional Director for Auckland and Northland, Wayne McDonald.

Some reclamation for the widening will be required from Great North Road to Rosebank Peninsula, and on the seaward side of Rosebank Peninsula from Rosebank Road off-ramp to the Whau River.

Timing of construction will depend on the statutory approvals process, which is likely to take all of 2010. Construction will be coordinated with other works to complete the Western Ring Route.

Completing the Western Ring Route has been identified by Government as one of seven Roads of National Significance that support regional and national economic growth.

Wednesday 30 September, 3.30pm-7.30pm
Te Atatu South Community Centre
247 Edmonton Road, Te Atatu

Saturday 3 October, 11am-3pm
