There will be changes for road users next week at two busy Auckland intersections linked to work on the Waterview Connection tunnel project – the Maioro Street interchange in Mt Roskill and at Great North Road at Pt Chevalier/Waterview.
Next Tuesday night ((25 October) a dedicated lane will open for traffic turning left from Stoddard Road onto Maioro Street and the southbound on-ramp of the Southwestern Motorway (State Highway 20). At the same time, existing left-turn traffic signals controlling access to the on-ramp from Stoddard Road will become a give way.
Additional improvements to the intersection’s traffic islands are continuing and drivers will need to take care when joining the motorway.
At Great North Road, the westbound on-ramp to the Northwestern Motorway (State Highway 16) will be affected by work from next Friday morning (28 October). The west-bound slip lane will be closed from 9am on Friday until 5am the next Monday (31 October) and there will be full closures of the on-ramp on Saturday and Sunday nights from 9pm.
There will detours in place for the Saturday and Sunday night closures.
This work is weather dependent.
