Public transport best option for “The Block”

Auckland Transport says free public transport is the best way to get to the Open Homes for “The Block” TV show this weekend.

The four houses on the corner of Lake and Eversleigh Roads in Belmont on the North Shore will be open for public viewing on Saturday and Sunday, 19 and 20 October, from 10am to 2pm. 

Large crowds are expected so Auckland Transport is enforcing some road closures and parking restrictions. Eversleigh Road from Lake Road to Northboro Road will be closed from 7am to 4pm on Saturday and Sunday. Access for residents will be managed at all times from the Northboro Road end.

Lake Road will remain open at all times, there will be a “stop go” system to manage pedestrians crossing from the bus stop outside Takapuna Grammar. The traffic lights may be turned off during the event.

Parking restrictions
• Eversleigh Road both kerb lines, between Lake Road and Northboro Road, Belmont
• Jutland Road, Belmont, one side
• Northboro Road, Belmont, one side
• Creamer Avenue, Belmont, one side
• Bardia Street, Belmont, one side
The parking controls will apply 8am to 4pm on both days.

Public Transport

There will be no parking available in the area, people going to the event should take public transport, cycle or walk.

813 Services will run from Takapuna and Devonport every 15 minutes between 8.30am and 3.15pm. Services will operate free between 8:00am and 4:00pm on Saturday and Sunday for all passengers. 

People going to the Open Homes are encouraged to park in Takapuna or Devonport or take public transport there and transfer to the free buses.

There will be a cycle valet service provided by Auckland Transport onsite, so bikes can be safely left while enjoying the event.
