NZ Transport Agency has approved funding for the Rangiriri and Tamahere-Cambridge sections of the Waikato Expressway.
Construction of both sections is planned for next year. The 4.4-kilometre Rangiriri section will connect to the Longswamp section to the north and the completed Ohinewai section to the south.
The 16km Tamahere-Cambridge section is the southernmost part of the expressway.
