49km Flexfence Wire Rope Barrier with Non-release TL3 Terminals.
2km of Ezy-Guard guardrail, terminated with ET2000 Plus end-terminals.
1.4km of Thrie-Beam for longitudinal and Rigid transition applications.
The Cambridge By-pass is part of the Waikato Expressway which starts south of the of the existing Tamahere Interchange and runs for 16km, ending around 2.5km south of Cambridge town where it reconnects with State Highway 1.
The Cambridge By-pass will benefit the town centre by freeing up congestion, improved safety through Cambridge, and reduced traffic noise in the town centre. This is a key strategic transport corridor for Waikato. When completed, the Waikato express will save 35 minutes from Auckland to Tirua, reduce fatal and serious injury crashes, plus reducing congestion on smaller townships Cambridge, Huntly and Ngaruawahia.
The Waikato has been designed taking the Safe System approach, which looks beyond the driver in the design of safety aspects of the road. It identifies and addresses all the causes of crash trauma which means that all parts of the system will be much safer. This ensures the planning and design will make them more forgiving of errors. Safence WRSB and Ezy-Guard were the safety barriers of choice for this project offering the highest level of guardrail and wire-rope safety barrier protection available to the market. Crashes into WRSB provide a much softer impact to vehicle occupants while still offering a containment level up to TL4.
HEB Construction began work in September 2013 with the planned completion in late 2015.
