Changes on Brigham Creek Road

|

Motorists will notice changes at Brigham Creek Road in Hobsonville in February and March when a brand new road and three new roundabouts are opened to traffic. This is the next step in the NZ Transport Agency’s SH18 Hobsonville Deviation and SH16 Brigham Creek Extension project as part of the Western Ring Route.

Motorists will notice changes at Brigham Creek Road in Hobsonville in February and March when a brand new road and three new roundabouts are opened to traffic. This is the next step in the NZ Transport Agency’s SH18 Hobsonville Deviation and SH16 Brigham Creek Extension project as part of the Western Ring Route. 

From Wednesday 3 February until Friday 19 March, the section of Brigham Creek Road between Kauri Road and Hobsonville Road will operate as a one-way road for motorists heading from Hobsonville Road to Kumeu. This will enable the team to construct a new roundabout system and shift traffic onto a new road layout. The temporary detour for motorists travelling from Kumeu to Hobsonville Road is via Trig Road.

NZTA’s State Highways Manager for Auckland and Northland Tommy Parker says motorists need to be aware that the area is still a live construction zone, “We’re encouraging motorists to drive slowly as they navigate the new layout for the first time. By 2012 they’ll be able to travel on and off the new SH18 motorway which is being constructed directly above Brigham Creek Road,” he says.

The work is part of the Brigham Creek Interchange with SH18 which when completed will form the connection between Kumeu and the North Shore via Brigham Creek Road.

The six kilometre, four-lane Hobsonville motorway is the last section of the new SH18 to be completed and will connect to the Upper Harbour Bridges and Greenhithe motorway at the eastern end and the Northwestern Motorway at the western end.

The $220M project also includes a three kilometre extension of SH16 to a new roundabout at Brigham Creek Road. The project will provide a better connection between Waitakere and North Shore cities and Rodney District and complete the key northern link of the Western Ring Route. The project is scheduled to be completed in 2012.

The NZTA thanks motorists for their patience and ongoing cooperation while construction of the new motorway continues.
