Northwestern on-ramp to close for ANZAC weekend

Northwestern on-ramp to close for ANZAC weekend

Auckland’s Great North Road westbound on-ramp to the Northwestern Motorway (SH16) will be closed this ANZAC Day weekend from 6am on Saturday 26 April to 5am on Monday 28 April.

The NZ Transport Agency says the closure is necessary for work to improve the on-ramp as part of its Causeway Upgrade Project.

Drivers are advised to use alternate routes to keep traffic volumes in the Great North Road interchange area to a minimum. Detours will be signposted to the nearby motorway on-ramps at St Lukes and Patiki Road.

“We are expecting that traffic in the Great North Road area will be heaviest on Saturday and Sunday afternoons between midday and 4pm so making alternate plans for travel, particularly at those times would be appreciated,” says the Transport Agency’s acting Highway Manager, Steve Mutton. “Our contractors will get their work completed efficiently so that we can reopen the on-ramp as soon as possible on or before 5am on Monday morning.”

Bus services will use the St Lukes and Patiki Road on-ramps as alternatives to Great North Road.

City or eastbound drivers using the Great North Road Interchange or the Northwestern Motorway will not be affected by the closure, and the Northwestern cycleway will remain open throughout the works.

The Causeway Upgrade Project is one of five projects to improve and complete the Western Ring Route and to connect the Northwestern and Southwestern (SH20) motorways.
