Bridge armouring work - Orams Road Bridge


The NZ Transport Agency wishes to advise motorists there will be various closures on SH1, northbound and southbound, between Manukau Interchange and Takanini Interchange, starting the evening of Sunday 1 August.

These closures will be in place so bridge armouring work can be carried out on Orams Road Bridge.  This work is part of the Bridge Strike Reduction Campaign, involving physical armouring to the areas where over-height impact is most likely.

The work will be carried out at night between the hours of 9pm and 5am, due to reduced traffic volumes and to minimise disruption to road users.  We expect the work will take around 6 weeks to complete, and the following closures will be in place during this time: 

  • Week 1 - multi lane closures northbound and southbound - no detour
  • Week 2 & 3 - full closure southbound lanes, including Hill Road off ramp - detour required + multi lane closures northbound - no detour
  • Week 4 & 5 - full closure northbound lanes, including Hill Road on ramp - detour required + multi lane closures southbound - no detour
  • Week 6 - multi lane closures northbound and southbound - no detour

These works are essential to ensure our bridges are protected from damage by over-height strikes.

For updates and information about these works, or any other motorway issues please call Auckland Motorways on 09 5200 200.
