Auckland’s Great North Road motorway on-ramp narrows

Auckland’s Great North Road motorway on-ramp narrows

Drivers are advised of changes to a section of Auckland’s Great North Road interchange fromtomorrow (Tuesday 20 May) when three lanes will become two.

The T2 lane only on the eastbound on-ramp to the Northwestern Motorway (State Highway 16) will be closed.

The T2 lane closure is part of the NZ Transport Agency’s Causeway Upgrade Project. It will allow the on-ramp to be re-aligned with interchange ramps being constructed for the adjoining Waterview tunnel project.

The Causeway Alliance will widen and raise the verges on both sides of the Great North Road on-ramp and then raise the on-ramp itself.

“We need to reduce the existing on-ramp from three to two lanes so that our team can work on one side of it at a time,” says the Transport Agency’s acting Highway Manager Steve Mutton.

“We have been monitoring traffic flow at the on-ramp and do not believe the T2 lane closure will have a significant impact. However, drivers will be sharing the other two lanes with heavy vehicles and a few buses, and people should take care driving through a live construction site for the safety of themselves and others.”

The Causeway upgrade is one of six projects finished or underway to complete the Western Ring Route to connect the Northwestern and Southwestern (SH20) motorways.

Teina Pora Wins Appeal: Gordon Campbell On The Privy Council Decision

The quashing of the convictions of Teina Pora for the rape and murder of Susan Burdett in 1992 has shone a spotlight once again on a major gap in the New Zealand justice system.

To all intents and purposes, access by New Zealanders to the Privy Council has now been closed. Yet the number of times in recent years when the Privy Council has quashed the findings of New Zealand courts has demonstrated that we are regularly
(a) jailing the wrong person or
(b) arriving at guilty verdicts on grounds sufficiently flawed as to raise serious doubts that a miscarriage of justice has occurred. More>>
