New Manukau motorway opening


A big change is planned for those travelling in and around Manukau when the NZ Transport Agency's SH20-1 Manukau Extension motorway opens this year.

The new motorway connects the Southern and Southwestern motorways and will be opened in three stages between late August and December. There will be some disruption to traffic on local roads as each part opens and some detours will be in place.

The first part to open will be the SH20 southbound lanes on Sunday 29 August. Watch out for electronic signs to show you the way to go. If wet weather postpones the opening, it will take place on the next fine night during the week of Monday 30 August.

To find out more:

We encourage you to forward this email or mention the opening to friends, staff, colleagues and customers. The more people who are aware of the changes, the easier it will be for everyone.

Thank you for your patience and co-operation.
