Weekend roadworks on lower Grafton Road

Transit New Zealand advises all motorists travelling through Grafton Gully that there will be major road works on lower Grafton Rd this weekend.

All other traffic movements through the intersection will be possible; however there may be delays due to changes in lane markings.

Motorists are advised to consider alternative routes where possible.

These changes are part of ongoing work on the Grafton Gully project, which is scheduled for completion in December.
