Saturday closures planned for SH1 St Marks on-ramp

|

The NZ Transport Agency advises motorists, residents and the local business community that the SH1 St Marks southbound on-ramp will be closed for the next three Saturdays, from 6:30am on Saturday until 5am on Sunday.

The NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) advises motorists, residents and the local business community that the SH1 St Marks southbound on-ramp will be closed for the next three Saturdays, from 6:30am on Saturday until 5am on Sunday.

The closures are required to progress vital construction work that will ultimately allow the on-ramp to connect to the new four-lane southbound motorway bridge, being built as Stage 1 of the Newmarket Connection: Viaduct Replacement Project. This new southbound bridge is scheduled to open in early 2011.

The St Marks on-ramp has been operating as a single lane facility since Easter this year. Work is being accelerated to allow the NZTA to open the new two-lane on-ramp by mid 2010.

Motorists leaving Newmarket to head south onto SH1 are advised to join the motorway at Greenlane via Great South Road. This detour will be clearly signposted. The NZTA thanks you for your cooperation during this essential work.
