New seal to be laid on SH1 through the Brynderwyn Hills


21 March, 2018 / AUCKLAND & NORTHLAND

New seal to be laid on SH1 through the Brynderwyn Hills this weekend

The NZ Transport Agency advises motorists travelling on State Highway 1 through the Brynderwyn Hills of work starting on Sunday 25 March to lay new seal on the road.

This final layer of seal will improve the road’s skid resistance and improve its waterproofing to ensure a resilient and long lasting road surface, says the Transport Agency’s Senior Manager Project Delivery, Chris Hunt.

The work is part of the Brynderwyn Improvements Project which has improved safety on the busy state highway by widening the road and shoulders, removing tight corners and installing 14 kms of safety barriers along the edge of the road and the centre line to separate north and south bound traffic.

Work will start on at 7pm Sunday night and run through till 6am, says Mr Hunt.

There will be more overnight work on Monday 26 March from 7pm to 6am.

On both nights, the road will remain open but there will be stop/go traffic management in place and a 30 km/hour speed limit along the 4.6 kilometre stretch of SH1. Drivers can expect a delay of up to 5 minutes.

The sealing work will continue during the day on Tuesday 27 March and Wednesday 28 March between 7:30am and 5pm.

There will be traffic management in place with a contraflow, which means there will be one lane in both directions and a 50 km/hour speed limit. Delays are expected to be minimal.

The Brynderwyns work is in addition to repair and resealing work on the three Mata Bridges further north on SH1 between Ruakaka and Oakleigh. This work is also due to start on Sunday night and run for four nights.

Both sets of work are weather dependent and may be postponed at short notice.

The Transport Agency thanks motorists for their patience and understanding and urges them to allow extra time for their journey or reschedule it to avoid delays.

Please follow the directions of the road crews and keep to the speed limits to ensure the safety of road crews and all other road users.
