Motorway Closures for Bike The Bridge on Sunday

The annual Bike the Bridge event takes place this weekend and will involve lane closures on the Northern Motorway and Auckland Harbour Bridge between 12.30am and 10.00am, Sunday 18 February.

The NZ Transport Agency says the Harbour Bridge will be open at all times during this period, however southbound motorists may experience delays as some lanes will be closed.

The Northern Motorway's left hand lane to the city will be closed after the Esmonde Rd southbound on-ramp (which remains open). The two left hand lanes will be closed from Onewa Rd and across the Auckland Harbour Bridge until, and including, the off-ramp exit to Shelly Beach Rd. The Onewa Rd southbound on-ramp will also be closed during this time.

All motorway lanes and exits will be open south of St Mary's Bay.

The Northern Busway will also be closed from Constellation Station to the Onewa Rd interchange, with Sunnynook, Smales Farm and Akoranga stations closed between 4.00am and 11.00am.

Bike the Bridge offers up to 4000 people aged 11 and over a once a year opportunity to ride over the Auckland Harbour Bridge while raising money for charity.

The Transport Agency says the event always attracts a lot of families and asks motorists to watch out for all cyclists, especially children, and share the road with extra care this Sunday.

As a Tufts study usefully explained, some of the basic mechanisms of the original TPP (and the CCTPP is not radically different in this respect) would – in practice – contribute to income inequality, by further tilting the existing imbalance between those reliant on profit-taking as a source of income, and those reliant on wages...
