Roading & Pavements

United Civil has considerable expertise in the design and construction of both public roads and industrial pavements and has completed some of the largest projects of these types undertaken in Northland over the last 10 years.

Examples include:

  • the almost 20km extension of sealed highway in the northernmost region of mainland New Zealand on State Highway 1 at Cape Reinga, with a build cost of $23m;
  • the construction of over 350,000 m2 of heavy duty pavement at Northport’s Marsden Point facility; and
  • the $15m extension of the Kamo Bypass on State Highway 1 in urban Whangarei.

We also routinely undertake road realignment and pavement rehabilitation projects for both local authorities and the New Zealand Transport Agency.

We continually invest in and operate a fleet of modern plant and equipment, including graders with 3D machine control which provide productivity improvement and an unparalleled accuracy of surface finish. We also own a mobile pug-mill with which we can blend lime and/or cement into aggregate at any quarry. This allows us to provide cost effective and environmentally friendly alternatives to premium basecourse or insitu stabilisation, whilst still allowing us to build robust, smooth and long lasting pavements.

Our capability across multiple disciplines allows us to undertake and self-perform across the most complex of road building projects, including those which require the construction of large reinforced concrete bridge and retaining structures, the provision of extensive traffic management and the construction of new or relocated underground services.

All contracts are controlled by our experienced management and engineering teams within the framework of formal quality systems, with a focus on safety, external stakeholder relationships, the quality and timeliness of the build and the outturn cost.
