Otaki Expressway Moves Forward


The Peka Peka to Otaki expressway, part of the Wellington Northern Corridor Road, took another move forward today.

NZTA is inviting tenders for undertaking this work on the corridor, being developed as a four-lane expressway from Levin to Wellington Airport.

The Peka Peka to Otaki section includes four-laning, intersection improvements and an Otaki Bypass.

The corridor will be built in sections with the overall route substantially completed within the next 10 years.

The work being tendered includes scheme assessment and engineering services, and environmental management, planning and consultation for the 13km four-lane expressway between Peka Peka Road and Taylors Road.

NZTA says its immediate priority is to finalise the design of the route to confirm consenting and property requirements.

Tenders will close on  May 25 for the Scheme Assessment and Engineering Services contract and June 8 for the Environmental Management, Planning and Consultation contract. NZTA will announce the successful tenderer(s) for these contracts as soon as commercial negotiations have been completed.

It is expected that this will be by the end of June. The Geotechnical Engineering and Testing contract will be put out for tender later in the year.
