As expected the long anticipated motorway extension from Puhoi to Warkworth has been approved with construction starting in December 2016. The expected finish date is October 2022.
This is exciting news and shortens the existing Omaha commute by approximately 15 minutes.
In addition, the Matakana link road was also recently approved which will open in conjunction with the new motorway. this link will join the new highway and cut in behind the Warkworth Showgrounds and come out approximately 800metres before the Warkworth Golf Club. This will greatly relieve traffic on the Hill St intersection.
