​Jacinda Ardern visits Broadspectrum’s Roads Hamilton contract

New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, along with Transport Minister Phil Twyford and Associate Transport Minister Julie Anne Genter visited the recently completed SH3 NZ Transport Agency safety improvements.  

The $5.8 million project was awarded to Broadspectrum, and included 11 kilometres of pavement widening and the installation of 12.5 kilometres of roadside safety barriers. Since installation, the barriers have been hit more than 40 times, potentially preventing serious injuries or deaths. 

Whilst onsite, the Prime Minister announced a further 2,430 kilometres of the country's most dangerous state highways and local roads will be made safer as part of the government's $1.4 billion Safe Network Programme. 

Broadspectrum Roads Hamilton team provided Temporary Traffic Management during the Prime Minister’s visit, which included a full site induction for the ministerial group and visiting media. 

Well done Broadspectrum Roads Hamilton for your continued efforts and partnership with NZ Transport Agency to make New Zealand roads Safe for Life.  

Great to see the Transport Minister wearing a Broadspectrum labelled hard hat!
