Waikato Expressway-Hamilton Bypass Tour
February 24 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pmFree
Join SESOC Waikato Branch for a coach tour of the Hamilton section of the Waikato expressway. Your chance to see the latest progress!
The Hamilton section commences at the Lake Road junction with the Ngāruawāhia section in the north. It then runs south, to the east of Hamilton, connecting to the existing Tamahere interchange deviation just south of Hillcrest. With the earthworks and bridge construction now completed, the focus of this tour will be on pavement construction, surfacing and finishing works.
On the tour you will see progress on the pavement construction, the contractor’s relocatable asphalt plant, and take a trip through the southern interchange to see finished bridges, retaining walls and landscaping. The project has had a specific issue with iron ochre affecting the subsoil drains which will also be discussed during the visit.
