Expect slight travel delays from next week...

If you travel on Hauraki Road, you’ll need to allow more time from 6 September 2022 through to 31 October 2022.

Our contractor HEB will be onsite to begin pavement rehabilitation work on an 810 metre stretch of Hauraki Road between SHWY 2 and Wharepoa Road.

Stop/Go operation in place 

Once work starts, there will a Stop/Go operation in place, which will add some time to your journey.

Hauraki Road is one of our busy arterial routes and the Transport team have been eagerly awaiting this construction season to tackle these repairs. You’ll remember that the 2019/2020 drought had a big impact on the Plains roads. This rehabilitation work is part of the work to address the slumping, rutting and settling of the road surface caused by the excessive contraction of the underlying peat soils on the Plains during the drought.

Drive to the conditions

You won't quite need a packed lunch to get you through the Stop/Go delay, but please allow for the extra time so you're not tempted to make it up somewhere else on your journey. And remember to expect the unexpected on rural roads - cows, farm vehicles, milk tankers and birds/animals!

The roading team will be monitoring the site and if delays for motorists do become too long, it will be addressed, but at this stage HEB thinks there will be 'no significant delays'.
