Pukekohe Race Track
In 2013 Higgins Auckland were awarded the contract to re-align a portion of this iconic track as part of a $6m raceway upgrade.
The contract was won on the back of the Higgins paving expertise, as well as the client’s preference for the unique asphalt mix designed by Higgins technical support group. Higgins reconstructed the three new corners along the back straight of the race track and was involved in the placement of specialist race track kerbs and the relocation of 3000m3 of clay/topsoil for new viewing areas beside the track. Australian touring car legend Mark Skaife provided technical advice to the shaping of the subgrade.
Project Manager Jamie Kitzen says the “The project is a real credit to the team involved. Our client iEDM who build racetracks for V8 Supercars, report the upgraded track has proven a huge success with drivers and fans".
