The SH12 Rawene Road intersection is a key gateway for community and tourists visiting Rawene and connecting with communities across the Hokianga harbour, via the ferry.
The recently completed Twin Coast Discovery Route SH12 Rawene to Katui Road business case identified this intersection as a priority for investment.

Works will bring the intersection up to Austroad standards by clearing vegetation to improve sight visibility, widening the inside curve of the highway, installing a guardrail on the southern side of SH12 and improving the left turn movement into Rawene Road from SH12. As well as this, north to south cyclist movements will be improved with a widened road shoulder, improving access to Rawene and the Hokianga ferry.
