The Wellington Northern Corridor will provide for at least two lanes of traffic in either direction between Wellington airport to Linden, near Tawa, as well as new roads from Tawa to north of Levin, a distance of 110 kilometres. The Corridor, which has been designated a Road of National Significance (RoNS) by the NZ Government, comprises a number of different sections, including:

- Transmission Gully (under construction);
- Inner City Transport Improvements from the Airport to the Terrace Tunnel;
- Aotea Quay to Ngauranga (completed in 2016);
- Linden to MacKays (Transmission Gully) (construction underway);
- MacKays to Peka Peka (southern section of the Kāpiti Expressway) (construction underway);
- Peka Peka to Otaki (northern section of the Kāpiti Expressway); and
Otaki to north of Levin.

The Wellington Northern Corridor has a 10-15 year delivery timeframe, with several components already underway or in detailed planning stages.

The NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) is investigating improvements to an approximately 30 kilometre section of State Highway 1 from Ōtaki to north of Levin.

The section, a key part of the wider Wellington Northern Corridor, aims to provide a modern and safe highway network that can safely accommodate future traffic volumes and enhance inter-regional and national growth and productivity.

Technical work to date by NZTA indicates a four lane expressway from Taylors Road to north of Levin in the vicinity of Koputaroa Road is desirable.

NZTA commenced public engagement on the project in early June 2017. NZTA will conduct another round of public engagement in October 2017 to discuss corridor options and anticipate taking a recommended corridor to the NZTA Board for approval in early 2018.

The 2013 Wellington Northern Corridor Business Case addendum indicates an expected cost of NZ$162 million with a construction programme of 2019-2024.

The Peka Peka to Ōtaki Expressway (also known as the northern section of the Kāpiti Expressway) involves the construction of a 15 kilometre four-lane, median-divided highway running along the existing SH1 route from Peka Peka Road to Te Horo, and containing an eastern bypass of Ōtaki. Project features include:

  • - an overbridge at Te Horo to link School Road and Gear Road with Te Horo Beach Road;
    - an overpass just north of Ōtaki allowing the old SH1 to pass over the expressway and railway
    - Ōtaki railway realignment;
    - a vehicle overbridge at Rahui Road crossing the Expressway and the railway line; and
    - a four-lane Ōtaki River bridge to be located east of the Ōtaki River rail bridge.

The construction contract was awarded to Fletcher Construction in November 2016. Major construction is planned to commence in mid-2017, and the route is expected to be open to traffic in 2020.

Fletcher Construction's partners on the project include Beca, Tonkin and Taylor, and Goodmans Contractors.
