The NZ Transport Agency announced Wednesday that it awarded the $330 million contract for construction of the Peka Peka to Ōtaki Expressway to Fletcher Construction.

The Expressway will be a 13km, four-lane highway that runs along the existing State Highway One route from Peka Peka Road to Te Horo, and an eastern bypass of Ōtaki. Major construction will begin in mid-2017.

It forms part of Wellington Northern Corridor, one of the Government’s Roads of National Significance, which runs between Levin and Wellington Airport, and is expected to open to traffic in 2020.
