Overnight closures between Warkworth and Wellsford cancelled next week


Overnight closures planned through Dome Valley for Sunday 12 February through to Thursday 16 February have been cancelled due to Cyclone Gabrielle.

The new full road closure dates (weather dependent) between 8pm and 5am will be on  the nights of:

  • Sunday 19 February through to Thursday 23 February
  • Sunday 26 February through to Thursday 2 March.

These works are planned to complete line marking and maintenance works including storm clean up, median barrier repairs and street light installation.

These works are being coordinated alongside closures for road surfacing works for the Ara Tūhono – Pūhoi to Warkworth motorway project with both teams working together to get as much work done as possible during the closures.

We thank you in advance for your patience an understanding while we undertake these works.

Journey planning

While the night work takes place, State Highway 1 will be closed to all traffic between Wellsford and Warkworth. A detour will be in place between Woodcocks Road, West Coast Road, Kaipara Coast Highway and Port Albert Road.

Those travelling between Auckland and Wellsford are advised to use SH16.

For up-to-date information on road works, traffic, detours and delays, drivers are encouraged to visit the Waka Kotahi Journey Planner website.
