Completion is in sight for two of the remaining three sections of the Waikato Expressway, with the Longswamp section opening to traffic on all four lanes later this year and the Huntly section opening early next year.

These are two very different work sites, with Longswamp seeing the existing two and three-lane highway widened to four, with side and central barriers. Traffic will be switched on and off the new lanes under speed restrictions while finishing works continue, including final asphalting.

Huntly is a 15km greenfields project and will open fully completed, with traffic on all lanes at 100km/h within days of the ribbon-cutting and public access day.

The Hamilton project – the biggest of all the sections – has moved past the halfway stage with the focus shifting from earthmoving and drainage to completing bridges and ramping up pavement construction. The Hamilton completion date is late 2021.
