Did you get stuck on the harbour bridge?

The Team Reporter from North Shore Times

Commuting across the harbour bridge is taking an hour longer on average due to works that need to be completed. How did this affect you?

Upcoming Road Resurfacing

John Gillon from John Gillon - Kaipatiki Local Board

This is the list of roads that Auckland Transport are planning on resurfacing in chip-seal or asphalt (hotmix) between now and the end of June 2021.
If a road appears in both lists, it will be mostly chip-seal, but with small portions of asphalt at the turning area at the end of the road, or at intersections, etc.
Since 2014/2015, Auckland Transport has been downgrading all roads that carry less than 10,000 vehicles a day to chip-seal. And because they use a smaller, poorer grade of stone than North Shore City used to use for chip-seal, the stones travel a long way, go up driveways, damage cars, cause problems for cyclists, etc.
