Passing lane closure over Anzac Day weekend

|

With traffic expected to be heavy on the Sunday of the weekend after Anzac Day, the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) is advising motorists to plan ahead to avoid potential delays.

During peak travel times, NZTA will be closing the southbound passing lane, north of Otaki.

On Sunday 28 April, NZTA will close the State Highway 1 southbound passing lane, north of Otaki, from late morning until late afternoon, subject to traffic flows.

Wellington Operations Manager Mark Owen says the closure of the passing lane, which is supported by the Police, is done for safety reasons and to improve traffic flows.

“The lanes will be appropriately signposted and fenced off with traffic cones and we’re reminding people to obey the normal road rules by keeping left.

“If traffic remains heavy, passing lanes will remain closed longer until we are satisfied traffic flows have reduced.”

Mr Owen says NZTA will be working with NZ Police to monitor congestion through Otaki and will instigate traffic management measures to improve traffic flow on Sunday 28 April from late morning through until early evening, depending on traffic flows.”

Meanwhile, Mr Owen said people should plan their journeys well in advance, drive with patience and avoid taking chances when turning or overtaking.  “Driving with courtesy can keep traffic flowing smoothly and helps ensure the roads remain safe.  We also encourage drivers to take breaks to avoid driving tired”.
