COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Information

This essential information outlines everything you need to know about our ongoing transport projects and the consultation process during COVID-19.
AT restarted work across 160 sites from Tuesday 28 April under Alert Level 3 restrictions. Each site has been operating under strict Health and Safety protocols based on Ministry of Health Guidance and industry best practice.
These measures will not change significantly under Alert Level 2 and will continue to include: physical distancing, compulsory PPE, hygiene practices, recording site entry and exit and separating teams into zones on our larger sites.
Inductions for new project staff and compulsory COVID-19 education and training will be part of ongoing site protocols while in Alert Level 2, plus any new restarted work will require contractors to submit COVID-19 Health and Safety plans and protocols to demonstrate a safe working environment.
Although our aim is to return to normal levels of productivity as quickly as possible to minimise delays and help spur the local economy, our priority remains ensuring the safety of our workers and the general public. As such, the pace of work under Alert Level 2 may not be as rapid as it is under normal circumstances.
AT will continue to maximise opportunities to accelerate productivity where possible until we can return to normal conditions. These measures may include extending working hours and expanding work sites to take advantage of less traffic on the road.
All project timelines are under review pending an assessment of the impact of COVID-19.
Find out more about what projects will resume under Alert Level 3.
Engagement (both informing and consulting communities on upcoming projects) will begin again under Alert Level 2 except for the following channels:
Instead of face-to-face communication, AT will engage via channels such as telephone calls, conference calls, email, Facebook live and webcasts.
