Detour ahead on SH1

State Highway 1 road resurfacing is scheduled to start on Sunday, March 8, forcing a detour for northbound traffic at Tamahere.

The work will be carried out between 7pm and 6am with northbound SH1 traffic detouring on to the off-ramp to Airport Rd via Tamahere Drive and continuing through the roundabout on to the on-ramp to re-join SH1.

New asphalt will be applied to the expressway surface and, consequently, also new line markings.
