Lanes on the Auckland Harbour Bridge remain closed

Transit Auckland Regional Office January 4, 2004

Lanes on the Auckland Harbour Bridge remain closed due to bad weather

Lanes 1 and 2 southbound will be closed The Shelly Beach Road off-ramp is also closed Southbound lanes 3 & 4 will remain open

Transit New Zealand would like to advise all motorists that resurfacing work started on the Auckland Harbour Bridge (AHB) has been delayed due to bad weather. It is likely that the curing process will be completed on the morning of 5 January 2005, with an afternoon peak opening time for the closed lanes. This will mean that motorists entering the morning peak traffic flow over the bridge will need to travel with care. The advice to motorists is to consider temporarily changing their driving patterns and/or transportation options. The lanes are expected to be open for the afternoon peak traffic, weather permitting.

The project is part of continuing resealing work essential to the upkeep of the AHB. The application of a new polyurethane surface will result in fewer delays due to lower maintenance requirements.

The second stage of the work is unaffected by the delay and takes place overnight from 8.00pm until 5.30am from 9 January until 13 January. Resurfacing work will be performed on the southbound section of motorway between the AHB through St Mary’s Bay to the Victoria Park flyover. During most of this operation, two lanes will be open to traffic in St Mary’s Bay. However, at times overnight there will be only one lane open. Shelly Beach Road off-ramp and all lanes over the AHB will be open during this stage of closures.

“During stage two of the closures, overnight from 9 – 13 January, motorists heading south may wish to get off at Shelly Beach Road off-ramp and rejoin at the Hobson Street on-ramp,” says Mr Hancy. “If travelling in the southbound left hand lane of the Harbour Bridge you must come off at Shelly Beach Road, during this period.”

Mr Hancy says it is very important that Auckland drivers are aware of the forthcoming delays, and where possible plan for them. Alternative means of transport such as buses and ferries, and alternative routes, are suggested, as well as travelling at off-peak periods.

There is a free call number kept updated (0800 RESEAL).
