Lane layout changes re-scheduled: SH1 northbound at Takanini



Lane layout changes are re-scheduled on SH1 northbound at Takanini

Changes to the lane layout for northbound traffic through the Southern Corridor at Takanini will now go aheadon Thursday night and be in place for Friday morning commuters. The changes were postponed earlier this week because of bad weather.

The motorway will be closed overnight Thursday between the Takanini Interchange and Manukau so that new lanes can be painted on the road, says the Transport Agency’s Senior Manager Project Delivery, Chris Hunt.

The lane changes are to create a safe work zone just after the northbound off-ramp at Takanini for approximately 1km. The new lane layout will be in place for about nine months to allow the team to safely build new bridge structures.

For drivers travelling northbound through the Takanini Interchange (SH1), the two lanes will be realigned and separated by a median barrier. The two lanes will be separated before the northbound off-ramp and will join again just north of the on-ramp. In this area, motorists will be unable to switch lanes.

The left-hand (slow) lane will be realigned, with traffic moving across into the right-hand lane. The right-hand lane will move further to the right into the area currently occupied by the southbound carriageway. A median barrier will also separate north and southbound traffic.

The 80km/h speed limit will remain in place and there will be no change to the number of lanes operating.

Customers are encouraged to keep to the speed limit, drive to the conditions and take extra care when driving near the construction zone, especially during the winter months.
