One of New Zealand’s most dangerous roads will finally be made safer with the $933 million Takitimu North Link road project, TVNZ reports. The design and construction contract was awarded to Fulton Hogan and HEB Joint Venture. Stage one will be a 6.8-kilometre, four-lane expressway between Tauranga and Te Puna, with construction to commence later in the year. Stage two will extend the highway from Te Puna to Omokora and is expected to start in 2024. The road project is anticipated to be finished by 2026.
