Longswamp section slideshow-May 2019

This slideshow is made up of aerial pics taken above Longswamp – which comprises a 5.9km section of existing SH1 route between the completed Rangiriri and Mercer sections.
The principal contractor is Downer NZ, and the project, which cost $96 million, is due for completion in November 2019.

At the moment the main focus is building the north-bound lanes. Traffic is now utilising the new south-bound lanes except in a small area south of the Whangamarino Road bridge where ground works were needed before SB lanes could be started.
