I contacted Auckland Transport to get more information about the upcoming Puhoi Road closures for night works.  This is the information I’ve received so far.  I’ll send updates as I get them, since I’m on the mailing list for that now.  Cheers, Mike Jensen

Pūhoi Road closure for girder installation at Arawhiti ki Pūhoi Bridge

Our Structures team from Ara Tūhono – Pūhoi to Warkworth will be installing large beams/girders on the Arawhiti ki Pūhoi Bridge across Pūhoi Road during the night. For safety reasons, a small section of Pūhoi Road will be closed at night while this happens, signposted detours will be in place. There will be stop/go traffic management during the nights detailed below.

During the road closures, the team will use a crane to install the beams/girders on Arawhiti ki Pūhoi Bridge. The team will also be installing the bracing for the girders. There will not be road closures on Friday and Saturday nights to allow access to the local tavern and sports club.

What does this mean for you?

Pūhoi Road (blue line on below map) will be closed on dates noted above during the hours of 09:00 pm and 04:30 am, and signposted detours will be in place. As the detours will add a considerable amount of time to journeys, people are encouraged to plan their travel for outside the closure hours, where possible.

Traffic management will be on site to guide traffic. They will also be available on Pūhoi Rd to assist residents that live within the road closure area.
