Summer season of Northland road resurfacing starts at Oakleigh on SH1

|

The NZ Transport Agency advises motorists that State Highway 1 at Oakleigh, south of Whangarei, will be closed at night or reduced to one lane to allow road repairs and re-sealing, starting Sunday 28 October.

The Oakleigh upgrade is one of the first in the summer programme of work on 230 lane kilometres of state highway to improve maintenance and safety just south of Whāngarei, says the Transport Agency’s Northland System Manager Jacqui Hori-Hoult.

The roadworks are happening just south of the Mangapai Road intersection in Oakleigh on SH1. The works will involve ripping up about 200 metres of road surface and replacing it with new aggregate and seal.

Our methodology to minimise delays means that the road will be closed to all traffic for 2 nights on Sunday 28 October and Monday 29 October at night from 9pm to 5am.

A detour will be in place for south-bound traffic via Mangapai Road, Paparoa Road, Paparoa-Oakleigh Road, and SH12 back to SH1 (see attached map). The detour is the same in reverse for north-bound traffic and will add another 30 minutes to the journey time. EV stations are available at Mangawhai and Whangarei details below.

Works will then continue in this area over the next ten nights between 7pm and 5am where we have one lane open at a time with stop/go traffic management and temporary speed limits in place.  Our work is weather dependent and we expect to have completed works by Wednesday 8 November.

The Transport Agency urges all motorists to take care, drive to the conditions, please keep to the posted speed limits this will keep our workers safe and other road users when  travelling through the work area.

“Follow the instructions of the traffic managers to ensure the safety of all road users,” says Ms Hori-Hoult.

The road crews will ensure that local residents can come and go from their properties at all times.

The Transport Agency apologises for any inconvenience and thanks motorists for their patience during this essential safety and maintenance work.
