SH1 St Marks on-ramp closed

|

The SH1 St Marks southbound on-ramp will be closed this weekend from 6:30am on Saturday until 5am on Sunday. The same closure will also be in place on the following weekend, Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 September.

The NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) advises that the SH1 St Marks southbound on-ramp will be closed this weekend from 6:30am on Saturday until 5am on Sunday. The same closure will also be in place on the following weekend, Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 September.

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.

A 24-hour freephone number, 0508 CONNECT (266 6328), is in operation to field all enquiries relating to the Newmarket Connection project. For further information please visit the project
