The NZ Transport Agency is planning changes to Wiri Station Road in Manukau from Labour Weekend, to improve connections in the area as part of work to complete the new connection between the Southern (SH1) and Southwestern (SH20) Motorways.
The NZ Transport Agency advises of the following closures for motorway improvements. Closures start at 8pm and finish at 5am, unless otherwise stated. Work delayed by bad weather will be completed at the next available date, prior to Friday 22 October.
The NZ Transport Agency is responding to drivers concerns about motorway congestion at Manukau in south Auckland and introducing new traffic control measures until work to connect the Southern Motorway (State Highway 1) with the Southwestern Motorway (SH20) is completed in late November.
The NZ Transport Agency says the substantial fines imposed on two Auckland taxi drivers for abusing safety laws restricting the hours they can work by will serve as a reminder to the industry that the agency is committed to ensuring public safety and will not hesitate to prosecute drivers or operators where violations of transport law are detected.
The NZ Transport Agency is planning a series of highway improvements, including ramp signalling, to ease congestion on the Southern Motorway where SH1 and the Southwestern Motorway merge at Manukau City.
