Motorway closures as part of CMJ upgrade

Work on Stage 2 of Transit New Zealand’s Central Motorway Junction project is continuing.

Temporary traffic safety barriers are already in place along the edge of the Northwestern Motorway (SH16) connection to the Port (port bound), as part of the CMJ Stage 1 works. These barriers will be extended further west to allow for CMJ Stage 2 works.

Closures:
The Northwestern Motorway to Port (SH16) link will be closed between 10.00pm and 5.00am on the nights of Monday 8 March and Tuesday 9 March 2004.

The Northwestern Motorway (SH16) to Southern Motorway (SH1) link will also be closed between 10.00pm and 5.00am on the night of Monday 8 March 2004.

Motorists travelling to the Port or Southern Motorway during these times are advised to follow the detours which will be fully sign-posted while the motorway closures are in place.

The closures are to allow for new lane markings, signage and the new temporary barriers.

Motorists are advised to take extra care through the area as they adjust to the changes.

Transit apologises for any inconvenience and thanks motorists for their co-operation.

The work is part of Stage 2 of Transit’s Central Motorway Junction upgrade project, which covers the section of motorway between Wellington Street and Symonds Street on the Southern Motorway (SH1) and between Symonds St and Bond Street on the Northwestern Motorway (SH16), and is scheduled for completion in 2006.

More information about the work can be obtained by phoning 0800 CMJ Core (0800 265 2673) or by visiting www.transit.govt.nz/cmj

The year of record-breaking natural disasters means that in the US, as in New Zealand, there’s a conversation happening about how best to run the emergency management sector and what philosophies best engage and protect communities in the event of a crisis.

How much of the responsibility for a community’s safety in a natural disaster is the Government’s, and how much can be left up to the community themselves? And how do we ensure none of our most vulnerable residents are left behind? More>>
