SH20A closures affect travel to Auckland airport


The NZ Transport Agency advises drivers of delays to Auckland International Airport because of work on SH20A (George Bolt Memorial Drive) - in two locations between State Highway 20 and Montgomerie Rd, from 8th - 10th October from 9pm - 5am.

The following closures will be in place during this time:

  • 8-9 Oct - SH20A closed between SH20 and Kirkbride Rd - Airport bound
  • 10 Oct - SH20A closed between Kirkbride Rd and Montgomerie Rd - Airport bound

People travelling to Auckland International Airport should allow more time because detours will add 5-10 minutes to journey times.

This work is weather dependent and may need to be carried out on the next available evening. For updates and information about this work, or any other motorway issues please call Auckland Motorways on 09 5200 200.

  • Motorists are urged to take care as they get use to the new layout and while work is continuing on the Papakura Interchange.
