Changes to intersections either side of Waterview Connection

There will be changes for road users next week at two busy Auckland intersections linked to work on the Waterview Connection tunnel project – the Maioro Street interchange in Mt Roskill and at Great North Road at Pt Chevalier/Waterview.

Next Tuesday night ((25 October) a dedicated lane will open for traffic turning left from Stoddard Road onto Maioro Street and the southbound on-ramp of the  Southwestern Motorway (State Highway 20). At the same time, existing left-turn traffic signals controlling access to the on-ramp from Stoddard Road will become a give way.

Additional improvements to the intersection’s traffic islands are continuing and drivers will need to take care when joining the motorway.

At Great North Road, the westbound on-ramp to the Northwestern Motorway (State Highway 16) will be affected by work from next Friday morning (28 October).  The west-bound slip lane will be closed from 9am on Friday until 5am the next Monday (31 October) and there will be full closures of the on-ramp on Saturday and Sunday nights from 9pm.

There will detours in place for the Saturday and Sunday night closures.

This work is weather dependent.
