The intersection will be upgraded to a roundabout designed with a safe system approach. This means the upgrades will help to reduce the risk of death and serious injury at the intersection of State Highway 10 and State Highway 11.
Improved access and connectivity, combined with these safety benefits, will improve the user experience for those travelling the Twin Coast Discovery Route and on to the Bay of Islands. This includes visitors who use the Twin Coast Discovery Route, which will help to boost tourist activity in this region.
Procurement for construction of the project will occur via the Northland Delivery Framework (NDF), ensuring that local contractors benefit from job creation during construction. The NDF is a procurement model focused on growing employment in Northland and improving productivity.
