    Puhoi to Warkworth Motorway

    Contract to design, construct, finance, manage and maintain for 25 years the highway between Puhoi and Warkworth, New Zealand.

    The Northern Express Group (NX2) consortium, which includes ACCIONA Concessions, has signed a contract with the New Zealand Transport Agency to design, construct, finance, manage and maintain for 25 years the highway between Puhoi and Warkworth, which is scheduled to open to traffic in 2022.

    The project, a public-private partnership initiative with a net present cost of  NZ$709.5 million (around €466.5 million), consists of an 18.5 km four-lane extension to the Northern Motorway (SH1) from the Johnstone Hills tunnels to the north of Warkworth.

    This will be the first section of the Ara Tūhono – Puhoi to Wellsford corridor, a strategic route for the country’s transport network and essential for connecting the northern region with the triangle formed by the cities and regions of Auckland, Waikato and Tauranga. The project is part of a state program to improve passenger and goods transport between some of the country’s major urban centres.
