Waka Kotahi (NZTA) is advising motorists travelling southbound on the Auckland Harbour Bridge to expect delays due to the closure of the clip-on lanes.

The lanes will be closed for resurfacing and other maintenance from Boxing Day for up to ten days. This closure will affect the Shelley Beach off-ramp with access controlled by a stop/go managment system.

Motorists are encouraged to use the Western Ring route if there are delays on the bridge. Three lanes will be open to traffic in both directions says Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency Auckland System Manager, Andrea Williamson.

“The resurfacing process on the bridge requires 3-5 days to “cure” before allowing traffic on it, so while it may look as if nothing is happening the team will be using the lanes closure for other maintenance tasks, including water blasting and painting just below the road deck.”

Motorists are advised to check Waka Kotahi's social media sites for any updates on the lane closures during the 10 day period.

Auckland motorists heading north reminded to plan ahead

Auckland drivers bound for Northland are being urged to plan ahead, exercise caution and be wary around construction sites by Waka Kotahi New Zealand.

The transport agency's work sites close today until January 4 to leave the roads clear for holiday traffic.

But temporary speed limits and road cones will still be in place where there has been road resurfacing.

Waka Kotahi regional relationships director Steve Mutton has reminded motorists to be patient and avoid trying to overtake crews setting up traffic signs and cones.

When motorists ignore the signs, they put at risk their safety along with the safety of other road users and the road workers, he said.

Speeding through work sites is a significant problem, Mutton said.

"Speeding vehicles can flick up loose metal and other objects which are a danger to road workers and other road users.

"Motorists also have less control at higher speeds."

Drivers need to factor holiday congestion and delays into their plans, Mutton said.

Trying to make up lost time by speeding and overtaking dangerously puts everyone using the road in jeopardy, he said.

More traffic is expected to hit Northland roads during the festive season with fewer people travelling overseas due to Covid-19.

“Drivers are urged to be patient, keep to the speed limit and drive to the conditions," Mutton said.
