The finishing touches are being applied to the fifth turnaround bay in the SH1 Cambridge to Piarere safety improvements project, just north of Hickey Road.

Along with constructing the turnaround bay, we’ve widened the entrance road at the weigh station on SH1, between Hickey and Hydro Roads, and will be installing median and side safety barriers.

Night works will begin tonight, Tuesday 4 June, to undertake line marking, followed by the removal of existing line marking and the installation of barriers.

The barrier installation will occur overnight Sunday to Friday, between 7pm and 6am until late June (weather dependent). Motorists should expect delays as there will be periods of alternating stop/go traffic management.

Around 3km of median barrier will be installed, from the end of the Waikato Expressway through to just past Hydro Road. This work (coupled with the median barrier prep and install continuing south between Keeley’s Reserve and Moana Roa Road) will take the amount of median barrier installed between Cambridge and Piarere to around 12km.

All work in this area is expected to be completed by the end of June.
