Project Overview

The Pūhoi to Warkworth project will extend the four-lane Northern Motorway (SH1) from the Johnstone’s Hill tunnels to just north of Warkworth. Building a safer, more reliable State Highway connection for motorists, freight and tourism will encourage economic growth and support expected population growth.

Hōkai Nuku is the authorised voice of four Iwi and Hapū mana whenua – Ngāti Manuhiri, Ngāti Mauku/Ngāti Kauae of Te Uri o Hau, Ngāti Rango of Kaipara and Ngāti Whātua. Hōkai Nuku was initially formed in 2010 to collaborate on the New Zealand Transport Agency Project – Ara Tūhono Pūhoi to Wellsford Road of National Significance and has been contracted by the Transport Agency to provide specialist advice for the Project.
