Russley Road upgrade – Speed reduction and lane closures


The NZ Transport Agency advises there will be speed and lane reductions on the new gateway bridge for about 8 weeks from Monday 19 February. Lane reductions will only occur over the weekend and SH1 will remain open.

The wire rope safety barrier is being temporarily removed in some places to allow traffic to move from one side of SHI to the other as final surfacing occurs. While the barrier is down, a 60km/h speed limit will be in place between Harewood Roundabout and the new Southern Airport Access intersection.

Please plan ahead and allow an extra 10 minutes for your journey during weekend work and nightworks, and a few extra minutes during the weekdays for the temporary speed reduction.

The works are weather dependent and may be postponed to the next suitable date if required.

The Transport Agency apologises for any inconvenience caused by the works.
