The Month Ahead:What have we done and what is coming up?
The past few months have seen some big changes to SH1 near the Tarewa Road instersection. A house has been demolished, earth has been moved, noise walls have been built and power lines have been relocated.
The contractor, Downer New Zealand, has been carefully working around the Otaika Stream as construction is underway nearby. Teams are undertaking earthworks to the south of the stream and installing piles on both sides. The stream's significance to Mana Whenua and the local community, combined with its contribution to wildlife and the Whangarei waterways means that close monitoring and environmental controls are needed to ensure the water remains clean.
On Monday 17th December, the right turn into Tarewa Road from SH1 and the right turn out of Tarewa Road onto SH1 will be closed to road users. This required so that the intersection improvements can progress. For more detail, see the information below.
