The Matakana Link Road (MLR) project was a 1.35km greenfield road between State Highway 1 (SH1) and Matakana Road in Warkworth. Warkworth has been
identified as a Satellite Town with over 1000ha of future urban zoned land.

Over the next 30 years these future urban areas are expected to accommodate approximately 7,500 additional dwellings, or an additional 20,000 people. The MLR project will improve resilience of the transport network by providing an alternative route to the busy Hill Street intersection, and also facilitate planned growth in the Warkworth area as identified by Auckland Council’s Warkworth Structure Plan and the Supporting Growth Alliance transport network. The project will form one piece of the overall future transport network for Warkworth. In particular, it will connect to the New Zealand Transport Agency’s (NZTA) Puhoi to Warkworth (P2Wk) project, and the future Western Link and Sandspit Link Roads. The job involved over 200,000 cubic meters of earthworks along with construction of 4 lane roading, drainage, services, footpaths, cycleways, lighting a 3 span bridge culminating in the tie in roundabout on Matakana Road.

Wharehine was awarded the Networks Outcome Contract, which covers a full road maintenance scope across the State Highway1 Network from Waiwera to the Brynderwyns and SH16 from Wellsford to Kumeu. It is a contract that operates all year around and has the possibility of call outs 24 hours a day. This contract has valued $10M of road renewals & safety portfolio projects outside of the maintenance works.  It demonstrates the scope and scale of this contract and our ability to deliver a wide variety of additional projects while maintaining a safe pair of hands for everyday road safety through our communities.

The Network Outcomes Contract (NOC) delivery is now almost exclusively used throughout the state highway network.

The core maintenance activities covered by the NOC include:

  • Network Management – asset management, journey management and safety management

  • Physical works – maintenance and renewals of sealed pavement, drainage and structures, environmental maintenance, traffic services and operational traffic services

  • Other network specific maintenance activities (eg tunnels) and local roads can be included as required.

The NOC provides for collaboration between Waka Kotahi and suppliers to achieve positive network outcomes. The performance framework, contract risk profile and management plans have been designed to bring the contractors practices and decision-making processes into line with Waka Kotahi goals and objectives for state highways.




Wharehine Construction was contracted to complete the Earthworks & Environmental Controls where we constructed and maintained all mitigation devices for the works including innovative controls within the tidal zone to prevent construction material loss during storm events and/or storms. We undertook the drainage & sanitary sewer as well as retaining walls/ rock and stabilised sediment walls. 
The contract required the removal of the existing concrete wall, “shotcrete” and rock revetment, retreating the shoreline 3 -6m and constructing 100m new concrete foundation and grouted masonry sloping seawall up to 2.6m high. There was Pavement within the scope and Concrete Works/ Structures as well as Traffic and pedestrian safety management.
The project called for a high degree of traffic and safety management, in particular with regard to the general publics continued use of the beach immediately adjacent to the site and the boat ramps at either end of the site. We also undertook all planting and landscaping scope.
