Upcoming overnight closures between Warkworth and Wellsford


Overnight closures are planned through Dome Valley next week to complete line marking and maintenance works.

There will be a full road closure for five nights (weather dependent) between Sunday 26 March and Thursday 30 March from 9pm to 5am.

This is rescheduled works due to unfavourable weather in February.

Prior to these works, road resurfacing will take place on the southbound lane of State Highway 1 at the Top of the Dome. This work is planned for Thursday 23 March between 8pm and 5am under stop/go traffic controls. Resurfacing of the northbound lane will be completed at this site while the Dome Valley closure is in place as above.
