The NZ Transport Agency cautions drivers to expect delays as sections of the Auckland Harbour Bridge and Northern Motorway (State Highway 1) will be closed as part of the course for an international Ironman event next Sunday, 20 January.
The NZ Transport Agency is advising motorists to allow extra time for their journeys with delays likely to continue for southbound traffic on State Highway 1 between Paraparaumu and Paekakariki over the next few days, due to roadworks in Paekakariki.
The NZ Transport Agency says it plans to start re-building the section of State Highway 6 washed away by flood waters near Harihari on the West Coast later today (Saturday, 5 January) or tomorrow at the latest.
The NZ Transport Agency says the two lanes on the northbound box girder (clip-on) of the Auckland Harbour Bridge will re-open just after midnight following the successful completion of maintenance work. The Curran Street on-ramp, which feeds north-bound traffic onto the clip-on, and the Stafford Street off-ramp on the North Shore will also be re-opening.
The NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) is advising motorists planning their summer journeys over the holiday season to be aware of road works in the Waikato and Bay of Plenty regions. Road maintenance activity increases over the summer months to take advantage of good weather, which contributes to the efficiency and effectiveness of this work.
