NZTA is taking steps towards upgrading the Puhoi to Wellsford section of SH 1. Resolve Group is preparing the documentation for the professional services contracts and managing the procurement phase on behalf of the Agency. These will be major engineering and planning contracts and cover 20 km of new highway in stage 1 and 15 km in stage 2.

The first phase will include a probable bypass of Warkworth and options for access to the town and the eastern beach developments further to the east. The first contract will be let in early 2010.
