With winter in full swing, Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency is advising people heading out of Wellington for the long Queen’s Birthday weekend to take extra care on the roads and plan ahead for a safe journey.
Changes will be taking place on State Highway 2 north of Sargent Road (Wainui Stream) and south of Wright Road (Whatakao Stream) from this week, as part of the Waihī to Ōmokoroa safety improvements project.
Persistent, hard rainfall over Canterbury has closed a number of state highways today. Others are being watched and may be closed if surface flooding continues and as night approaches with reduced visibility.
Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency would like to acknowledge the patience of road users who experienced delays on the Auckland transport network this morning as lanes on State Highway 1 northbound over the Auckland Harbour Bridge and the Curran St on-ramp were closed.
