Route

The route begins at Exit 461 on SH 1 near Drury and travels in a general south-west direction towards Pukekohe. The highway officially terminates where SH 22 meets the northern intersection with Adams Drive. From there the road changes to Edinburgh Street and continues into Pukekohe town centre.

History

SH 22 used to cover a much longer route, via Tuakau, all the way to meet with SH 23 (which runs from Hamilton to Raglan). This section was revoked circa 1990 although much of the original route still holds the name "Highway 22".

A start was made on upgrading the road to the SH 23 junction near Te Uku in the early 1960s. 85% of the cost (£75,000 in 1961 - $3m at 2015 prices) was paid by the National Roads Board, which gazetted it as State Highway 22 in July 1963.
