Traffic Congestion At Hillsborough Rd
Motorists are being warned to avoid two sections of Hillsborough Rd next week as major pavement reconstruction is expected to cause traffic congestion.
In some places, as well as rebuilding the pavement, contractors will also be repairing the underground drains and traffic flow will be disrupted.
From Monday (Feb 18th) until Wednesday, work will be on pavements in Hillsborough Rd between Belfast St and Olsen Ave and from Wednesday 20th until Friday 22nd on Hillsborough Rd between Cape Horn Rd and Kingshaven Close.
The normal four lanes of Hillsborough Rd will be reduced to three in the morning and afternoon peak hours and to two lanes – one lane each way – in the middle of the day.
Auckland City Traffic and Roading Services staff are advising motorists to avoid Hillsborough Rd altogether, where possible for all of next week.
