Delays overnight 2 Oct - 30 Nov Akld Hbr Bridge

Media Release

Traffic delays overnight from 2 October - 30 November on the Auckland Harbour Bridge

Transit New Zealand is issuing a warning to Auckland motorists about likely overnight delays to motorway traffic on the Auckland Harbour Bridge (AHB) during October and November.

A resealing project is being undertaken from 9.00pm - 5.30am from 2 October - 30 November 2005. The advice to motorists is to consider temporarily changing their driving patterns and/or transportation options during the closures.

The work is part of continuing resealing work essential to the upkeep of the AHB. During these times the centre four lanes of the bridge will be closed to traffic which will have to use the clip-on lanes. The Curran Street on-ramp will also be closed during these times.

Transit Regional Manager, Richard Hancy says that the work is unavoidable and has been scheduled for the least busy time of the day to minimise inconvenience to the public.

"Going by previous resurfacing campaigns, we are confident that the AHB resealing will cause minimum disruption," he says. "Provided people are aware of the closures and take alternative routes where they can, traffic should keep flowing."

Mr Hancy says it is very important that Auckland drivers are aware of the forthcoming delays, and to plan for them where possible.

Transit will be reminding drivers of the closures with advertising and community notices, as well as signage on the motorways and near the bridge. There will also be a free call number kept updated (0800 RESEAL).

Apart from the six provisions that are constitutionally entrenched, legislation can always be amended or overturned by a simple majority vote within our single chamber of Parliament. Luxon’s repeated use of the term “settled law” has been particularly tone deaf, given that several of the US Supreme Court justices used that very same term during their confirmation hearings...
