Allow more time for your journey if travelling northbound on SH22 due to long-term lane closures


Waka Kotahi is advising northbound motorists using SH22 to be aware of long-term detours in the area as work continues to progress on the construction of the Glenbrook Roundabout, which is replacing the current 'Give Way' intersection.

In order to construct the pavement on both SH22 and Glenbrook Road and the tie-in approaches to the roundabout, Waka Kotahi will be closing part of both roads for an extended period.

The closure, which started on 5 January 2022, will see the northbound lane of SH22 closed for 7 weeks, while Glenbrook Rd will remain closed until the end of March – see further details below.

Before deciding on this closure, Waka Kotahi looked at a number of different options. This was the best course of action overall as it allows multiple construction activities to take place at the same time and will shorten the disruption for the local community.

Residents of Glenbrook Road and SH22 will still be able to access their property during the closure. Instructions will be provided directly to residents on how to access their property during the construction period.

The roundabout is one of several safety improvements Waka Kotahi is rolling out along State Highway 22, with the area expected to get busier as the local community grows.

Waka Kotahi advises motorists to allow more time for their journeys, with travel times expected to increase by up to 15 minutes when using the detour routes. We understand this may be frustrating, but the closure is essential to the completion of the project.

Waka Kotahi would like to thank the Franklin community for their ongoing patience and support while we implement these safety improvements.
