The Ara Tūhono – Pūhoi to Warkworth motorway project team has been celebrating after being awarded for its efforts to protect the local environment, particularly waterways, during construction.

The Northern Express Group recently won the International Erosion Control Association (IECA) Environmental Excellence Award, which celebrates innovation and outstanding achievement in the keeping sediments out of waterways during construction.

Fletcher infrastructure Project Director Robert Jones says environmental standards have been front and centre as one of the project’s main considerations right from the get-go.

“The Ara Tūhono – Pūhoi to Warkworth motorway is being built to high environmental standards with a focus on protecting native species and our waterways, as well as significant planting and restoration works,” he says. 

Erosion and sediment control is a key consideration and something the project team is particularly passionate about.
