Wilson Ave West intersection to close 10 February

From Tuesday 10 February the intersection of Western Hills Drive and Wilson Avenue West will be closed permanently.
Updated: 27/01/2015 11:10 a.m.

​The closure comes as the NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) and Whangarei District Council (WDC) will soon begin the next stage of road works to improve traffic flow along State Highway One  (SH1) through Whangarei.

Drivers are advised to use Central Avenue West to access Western Hills Drive (SH1) from this date. 

Between March and November, road work will be focused on the stretch of Western Hills Drive (SH1) between Fourth Avenue and Wilson Avenue.  While two-laning along the stretch is completed the intersection of Fourth Avenue and Western Hills will be closed temporarily.  Most of the work will be carried out on the right hand side of the road (driving north).  In November a reconfigured intersection will be opened at fourth and Western Hills Drive (SH1).
