The NZ Transport Agency says it is planning to re-open the two westbound lanes of Auckland’s Northwestern Motorway (State Highway 16) at half-past-ten this morning.
Two of the three lanes were closed early this morning when a gantry sign over the motorway was accidently hit by a machine installing safety barriers along the edge of the motorway.
The accident occurred 500 metres west of the Great North Road interchange. No one was injured.
The Transport Agency says there are some delays for westbound traffic while the damaged sign is removed. All eastbound lanes on the motorway remain open.
