Aerial maps now available
We have published individual sections of the corridor map, to make it easier for people to print specific areas of the emerging preferred corridor off the website.
The emerging preferred corridor includes areas of land on either side of the highway, as shown between red lines.
An indicative design of the upgraded highway will be added to the map within the next 6-8 months showing the location of traffic lanes, intersection layouts, access points and the shared path within the red dotted lines. The term we use for the emerging design is the ‘indicative alignment.’
The red lines will be refined as a result of technical investigations, consultation and design work to show the area of land needed to construct, operate and maintain the upgraded highway. As the project progresses through 2021, we will start to refer to the refined corridor as the ‘proposed designation boundary.’
At the end of 2021, or early 2022, we will be seeking approvals under the Resource Management Act (1991). The map we lodge with our resource consent application and Notice of Requirement to designate the land required is titled ‘Indicative Alignment within Proposed Designation Boundary.’
If you are interested in seeing the level of design detail shown on maps at the time of consenting, please take a look are what we prepared earlier this year for our Warkworth to Wellsford project.
