The Whāngārei to Te Hana project responds to the Government’s directive to the Transport Agency to deliver a divided carriageway on a safe alignment between Whāngārei and Auckland. The programme includes a combination of projects to deliver an upgraded carriageway and safer alignment of State Highway 1.

The project is divided into two sections, with each section having various stages:

Port Marsden Highway to Te Hana

-Port Marsden Highway to Waipu ($45 million)
-Brynderwyn Hills bypass
-Brynderwyn to Te Hana

Whāngārei to Port Marsden Highway

-Oakleigh to Port Marsden Highway
-Whāngārei to Oakleigh

In July 2018, the NZTA announced the re-evaluation of the project to align it with the new priorities set out in the Government Policy Statement (GPS) on Land Transport. Re-evaluation was first proposed in the Draft Transport Agency Investment Proposal (TAIP) released earlier in 2018.

NZTA completed re-evaluation in October 2018, recommending short term saftey improvements along with route protection.

Further details on timing and scope of the project are likely to be available once all 12 project re-evaluations are completed by NZTA, expected in December 2018. Funding allocations for re-evaluated projects will be considered against funds available nationally.

Port Marsden Highway to Te Hana (where the route will meet the Auckland motorway network) is the second stage of the Whangarei to Te Hana project.

This section of State Highway 1 (SH1) is a long-term programme of investment that will improve safety, reliability and resilience of the network. The improvements will reduce the cost of travel for the freight industry, and improve the ability of Northland to attract investment and tourism.

In mid-2018 the Whangarei to Te Hana programme was re-evalauted by the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) to align it with the NZ Government's priorities outlined in the Government Policy Statement (GPS) on Land Transport. Re-evaluation was completed in October 2018, with the NZTA announcing the recommended programme of works, which for the Port Marsden Highway to Te Hana section included:

-safety improvements,
-upgrades to alternative routes to SH1 between Port Marsden Highway and Te Hana, and
-route protection for a bypass of Brynderwyn Hills

Further details on section funding, scope and timing will be available once all project re-evaluations are completed by NZTA, expected in December 2018. Construction timing will be based on prioritisation of projects nationally.

Originally, two options were shortlisted for the Bynderwyn Hills Bypass. They were approximately 15-20km long and avoid areas of significant cultural and environmental value. The total estimated cost of the section was $500 million - $800 million.

The first stage of the Whāngārei to Te Hana programme is planned between Whāngārei and Port Marsden Highway (SH15).

The Whangarei to Port Marsden State Highway Upgrade project will see 22 kilometres of state highway upgraded to four lanes between Northport, the major shipping port in Port Marsden, and Whangarei, the regional capital of the Northland Region.

Upgrading the road to four lanes and separating traffic will provide a more reliable connection between the Whangarei and the port - which exports 3 million tonnes of freight per year - while also improving safety.

The project forms parts of a larger programme to upgrade road connections between Auckland and Whangarei. Other projects along this corridor include the Warkworth to Wellsford Road project (indicative route released in February 2017) and the Pūhoi to Warkworth Public-Private Partnership (under construction).

In mid-2018 the Whangarei to Te Hana programme was re-evalauted by the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) to align it with the NZ Government's priorities outlined in the Government Policy Statement (GPS) on Land Transport. Re-evaluation was completed in October 2018, with the NZTA announcing the recommended programme of works, which only included future-proofing for a new route between Whangarei and SH15.

Originally, the project was to be developed in two sections Oakleigh and Port Marsden constructed within three to five years, and Whangarei and Oakleigh constructed within five to seven years.
Construction of the first section is was expected to begin in 2019, with a cost estimated between NZ$400 million and NZ$500 million.

NZTA states further details on cost, scope and timing of the new route depend on growth and funding priorities across the rest of New Zealand. Further details are likely once all project re-evaluations are completed by NZTA, expected in December 2018.
