Motorway Closures Continue This Week

Transit New Zealand advises all motorists that lane and ramp closures on the Southern Motorway and State Highway 16 connections - to and from the port - continue this week as work progresses on Stage 1 of its Central Motorway Junction upgrade project.

The Wellesley Street and Port off-ramps from the Southern Motorway will be closed to all traffic from 10pm on Monday 14 July to 5am Tuesday 15 July. From Tuesday 15 July, the left hand shoulder on the off-ramp will be closed until the end of the year to allow for work under the Southern Motorway. Temporary barriers and cones will be in place along the shoulder, and motorists are advised that there may be delays.

In addition to the Wellesley Street off-ramp closures, the State Highway 16 connections to and from the port and Grafton Gully remain reduced to one lane until January 2005.

A number of other closures of on and off-ramps, motorway lanes and local streets in the area, will also continue over the coming months. These include:

- The Gillies Avenue off-ramp (southbound) will be closed each night from 11pm until 6am, Sundays through to Thursdays, until 17 July.

- The Khyber Pass on-ramp (southbound) will be closed from 7am every Sunday through to 6am every Monday until the end of July. The on-ramp will also be closed regularly at night until mid 2004.

- There will be ongoing north and southbound lane closures at night on the Southern Motorway between the Gillies Avenue on and off-ramps and the Symonds Street over-bridge for the duration of the project. During these closures at least one lane in each direction will remain open to traffic.

- There will be ongoing night closures of sections of Khyber Pass Road and Boston Road (from 9pm until 6am) until mid-2004.

Scheduled for completion in 2005, stage 1 of the Central Motorway Junction upgrade project covers the section of motorway between Upper Queen Street overbridge and Gillies Avenue on and off-ramps.

More information on specific changes and the project in general can be obtained from the project information centre at the corner of Stanley Street and Alten Road, Grafton (open 8.30am – 5.30pm, Mondays – Fridays), by phoning the project office on 0800 ToFreeflow (0800 863 733) or by visiting the Transit website: www.transit.govt.nz.
