Two significant changes next week will affect drivers using Auckland’s Northern Motorway (State Highway 1) between Upper Harbour Highway and the Greville Road interchange.
Next Monday (8 December), drivers will use a new signalised northbound off-ramp at the Greville Road interchange, which will replace the old roundabout.
The following Friday (12 December), northbound traffic can start using the newly completed additional motorway lane between Upper Harbour Highway and Greville Road.
“These changes are designed to improve safety and help ease congestion on this section of the motorway,” says the Transport Agency’s Highway Manager Brett Gliddon.
“We’re asking people to continue to be careful through the area while they get used to the new layout. It also remains a construction site, and our priority is to have the entire Upper Harbour Highway to Greville Road Northbound 3-laning project complete in early 2015.”
In addition to the additional motorway lane and improved interchange at Greville Road, the project is also widening the southbound lane on the Albany Expressway from 1 to 2 lanes and is providing a new shared walking and cycling path along both Greville Road and the Albany Expressway.
Next week’s changes are weather dependent.
