Went and had a look for myself at the progress at Pukekohe. In a nutshell:
Concrete barriers everywhere!
They’re on the outside of turn one, the outside of Ford Corner, the inside of the pits, the exit of the pits, along the front straight, and all along Jennian Corner.
I’ve pinched these photo’s off Facebook, and as you can see, some were taken prior to some of the concrete blocks going in. Note that some images are looking backwards down the track, so the inside is the outside, and the outside is the inside. Though, if you’ve spun there before, it will look totally normal to you.
All the ripple strips are being redone, so what looks like a smooth apex through Railway will in the end have ripples.
Apparently there is a approx 2m elevation through the new corners. Pukekohe has a new mountain to climb!!
