Auckland Southern Motorway Realignment
SOUTHERN MOTORWAY LANE REALIGNMENT
Due to poor weather, the advertised changes to the southbound lanes on the Southern Motorway were not in place on Wednesday morning (24 September), but will be in place from today:
Transit New Zealand advises all motorists that from 6.00am today, Thursday 24 September, all southbound lanes on the Southern Motorway between the Grafton Road on-ramp and the Khyber Pass on-ramp will have been realigned. The lanes will have shifted east towards the motorway shoulder. Motorists are advised to take extra care through the area and be wary of changes to lane markings. There may be delays.
Changes are weather permitting and in the event of bad weather, work will be undertaken on the next clear night.
Other changes: A contraflow remains in place south of the Gillies Ave on-ramp to north of the Khyber Pass off-ramp.
The Northbound shoulder remains closed between the Gillies Ave on-ramp and the Khyber Pass off-ramp.
The CMJ Project Stage 1 of Transit’s Central Motorway Junction upgrade project covers the section of motorway between the Upper Queen Street over-bridge and Gillies Avenue on- and off-ramps and is scheduled for completion in 2005.
Project information centre: corner of Stanley Street and Alten Road, Grafton, 8.30am – 5.30pm, weekdays.
