Work starting late 2019 on Awakino bypass

Fulton Hogan will start construction in October on the Awakino Tunnel bypass on SH3 between Taranaki and King Country.

The NZ Transport Agency awarded us the $28.9 million contract to build the 2.3km bypass to take traffic away from the single-lane Awakino Tunnel.

The new route will include two bridges over the Awakino River, along with a passing lane, rest area and walkway to the tunnel.
