New motorway on-ramps in Grafton Gully

New motorway on-ramps in Grafton Gully

From Saturday 21 June, motorists in Grafton Gully will have to take new routes to get onto the Southern (SH1) and the Northwestern (SH16) motorways.

The existing Grafton Road on-ramp will close at 8pm on Friday 20 June, and from Saturday 21 June motorway access will be via a new on-ramp. This on-ramp begins just after the Stanley Street/Alten Rd intersection and runs parallel to the new port�bound section of motorway, which opened earlier this year.

Traffic coming from Grafton Road will access the new on-ramp via a temporary loop road which will be used until the new Wellesley St Bridge on-ramps open later in the year.

While traffic signs and road marking will identify significant changes, motorists are asked to take note of new access routes to both motorways:

From the Hospital/Grafton Rd:

Enter Stanley Street and use the temporary loop road to access the motorway.

From Symonds St/University:

a) Use Alten Rd, then turn right into Stanley St and the new on-ramp

b) Via Grafton Rd turn left into Stanley St and use the temporary loop road

From Beach Rd/Stanley St:

Continue straight ahead onto the new on-ramp

From Lower Domain Drive:

Turn left into Stanley St, then right into Grafton Rd and use Symonds St and Alten Rd to access the new on-ramp.

Look out for more information in the New Zealand Herald on 18 and 20 June.

All work is subject to weather. If there is wet weather work will be postponed until the next clear night.

The opening of the new motorway access is a significant milestone for the Grafton Gully motorway upgrading project which, when completed, will provide direct access between the motorway and the port.

Transit asks motorists to drive carefully past road works and to be mindful of signals and traffic management measures: they are for your safety and the safety on he people working on the site.

For more information on this project, visit the project information centre at the corner of Stanley Street & Alten Road, phone 0800 ToFreeflow (0800 853 733) or visit the Transit website http://www.transit.govt.nz.

There are a lot of good reasons to feel joyful about this outcome. It is what so many young voters – the best hope for the country’s future – wanted.

Far more important than the implications for the Economy Gods ( is the dollar up or down? ) last night’s outcome will also mean many, many vulnerable New Zealanders will have a better life over the next three years at least.

Yet the desire for change was in the majority, across the country..>>>More
