Sylvia Park Traffic on Southern Motorway – Latest Update
Transit New Zealand advises motorists travelling on the Southern Motorway to the new Sylvia Park shopping centre that due to heavy congestion all traffic is being diverted away from the site.
Entry to the car park is now closed and the northbound off-ramp to Mt Wellington has also been shut to restore traffic flows.
Motorists are requested to plan their visit to Sylvia Park for another day.
Transit is working closely with the shopping centre and Auckland City Council to relieve congestion around Sylvia Park, and will provide further information when it becomes available.
Motorists should look out for electronic message signs and listen to radio bulletins for updates and alternative routes.
Motorists from travelling from the city to east Auckland should continue to use Ellerslie Panmure Highway, while those heading south of Mt Wellington should use Great South Road.
