The NZ Transport Agency advises motorists of a lane closure on State Highway 1 through Whāngārei starting today.

Contractors have started work to repair the road surface on Western Hills Drive, just south of Manse Street. The left hand south-bound lane will be closed from 9am to 4pm on Tuesday 12 December to Friday 15 December. One south-bound lane will remain open.

The second stage of work – when the new surface will be laid – will be completed in January.
