Kamo Bypass Opening


Stage two of the Kamo Bypass opens this Sunday  – three months “ahead of schedule” as usual.

The new 1.3 kilometre-long section of the Kamo bypass runs north from the top of Western Hills Drive, intersects with the new Spedding Road link, before joining the original bypass close to the Whangarei golf coure

The cost: $25m

NZTA Regional Director for Auckland and Northland Stephen Town said  the agency was asking drivers using the bypass to take extra care as some work was still underway to put the finishing touches on the project.

The community will get first use of the project before any vehicles when the NZTA opens it walkers and cyclists on Sunday morning.  This will follow the dawn blessing official opening led by Hon. Phil Heatley MP, Mayor Morris Cutforth, local iwi, and NZTA officials.

Mr Cutforth says both the Kamo Bypass Stage Two and his council’s associated Spedding Road link are critical to keep traffic moving at the northern end of Whangarei.
