Night time roadworks for safety improvements on SH1 in Dome

Published: Wed 14 Aug 2019 09:17 AM
The NZ Transport Agency advises there will be night time road works on State Highway 1 south of Wellsford, starting Sunday night.
The work, between the Hoteo bridge and the north-bound passing lane, will be carried out over seven nights, between 7pm and 6am, from Sunday 25 August. Weather permitting, it will be finished by 6am Friday 30 August, says the Northland System Manager, Jacqui Hori-Hoult.
Each night traffic management crews will put out road cones from 7pm and a stop-go lane closure will start from 8pm, while contractors clear vegetation and install more temporary steel barriers along the roadside so work can continue on the safety improvements.
“During the work, our team will temporarily stop traffic while work is being carried out to ensure the safety of the work crews and road users. We will be monitoring the queues and minimising wait times as much as practical.”
“The Transport Agency apologises for any inconvenience and advises road users to plan ahead and allow extra time for their journeys. The work is being done at night to minimise disruption for freight movements and the travelling public.”
The planned safety improvements on SH1 through the Dome Valley include widening the centre line and road side shoulders, adding right hand turn bays and installing flexible road safety barriers. The work will be done in five stages along the 15km section of SH1 from Wellsford to north of Warkworth.
This project is being delivered as part of the Safe Network Programme, a collaborative, prioritised programme of proven safety interventions on high risk routes across New Zealand.
