Warkworth to Wellsford overnight closures


People travelling north of Auckland on SH1 will need to plan ahead for further overnight closures through Dome Valley.

Crews have been working hard during overnight closures to prepare the roads for the holiday period but due to the high level of rainfall recently, work will need to be completed early next week.

There will be a full road closure for three nights between 8pm and 5am from Sunday 11 December, Monday 12 December and Tuesday 13 December.

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.

While we are working in this area, general maintenance activities, guardrail repairs and line marking will also take place.

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

People driving through the Dome Valley during the day should take care and keep to any temporary speed limits especially in the area near Frog Pool Farm where we are working to remedy works and will be laying asphalt.
