The Cambridge section of the Waikato Expressway starts south of the existing Tamahere interchange and runs for 16km, ending around 2.5km south of Cambridge town where it connects with the existing State Highway 1. HEB Construction began work in September 2013 and completion of this project is expected in early 2016.
The Waikato Expressway is a four-lane highway which extends from the Bombay Hills to south of Cambridge. The expressway, which is part of the Roads of National Significance programme, is being built in seven sections (including the Cambridge Bypass section) and will provide a more effective and efficient transport network connecting the business centres of Waikato, Auckland and Bay of Plenty. It will improve economic growth by more efficiently moving people and freight.
Bartley Consultants are part of the URS lead design team for the HEB design and build consortium. Our role was to carry out the pavement design, specify the construction requirements to be achieved on-site and carry out the site monitoring for the pavement construction.
