Restrictions in place this weekend at Greville Road


The NZ Transport Agency is reminding drivers who use the Greville Road interchange on Auckland’s Northern Motorway (State Highway 1) about this weekend’s closure.

The closure starts from 9pm this Friday, until 5am Monday (13 October).

The weekend restrictions are as follows:

  • Northbound traffic exiting the motorway at Greville Road will be diverted down Tawa Drive to access Rosedale Road, Bush Road and Albany Expressway.
  • Northbound on-ramp at Greville Road will be closed.
  • No access to Albany Expressway from Greville Road or the motorway off-ramp
  • Southbound traffic exiting the motorway at Greville Road can only left turn.

There will be sign-posted detour routes.  The Transport Agency says local roads are also expected to be busy, and people using the detours should allow extra time to get to their destinations.

The interchange closure is needed because of necessary work related to the Transport Agency’s Upper Harbour Highway to Greville Road Northbound 3 Laning project – a series of improvements to both the motorway and local roads.

The project is constructing an additional northbound lane on SH1 between the Upper Harbour Highway and Greville Road interchanges, and switching the Greville Road/Tawa Drive/Albany Expressway roundabout into a fully signalised intersection.  It is also widening the southbound lane on the Albany Expressway from 1 to 2 lanes. There will also be a new shared walking and cycling path along both Greville Road and the Albany Expressway.

A second weekend closure is planned for Friday night 17 October until Monday morning 20 October. Both weekend closures are dependent on the weather. 

The Transport Agency thanks drivers, and the local community, for their patience during these changes and looks forward to completing this project and delivering its benefits in early 2015.
