Motorway closures for Bike the Bridge on Sunday

11 November 2016 | AUCKLAND & NORTHLAND

Motorway closures for Bike the Bridge on Sunday

The annual Bike the Bridge event takes place this weekend and will involve lane closures to the Northern Motorway and Auckland Harbour Bridge between 12.00am (midnight) and 10.00am, Sunday 13 November.

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

The Northern Motorway's southbound left lane will be closed after the Esmonde Rd southbound on-ramp (which remains open), with the two southbound left 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 (including the bus-only lane) will also be closed during this time. All motorway lanes and exits will be available 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 Busway Stations also closed between 4.00am and 11.00am.

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

Public Housing Futures: Christmas Comes Early For Landlords

New CTU analysis of the National & ACT coalition agreement has shown the cost of returning interest deductibility to landlords is an extra $900M on top of National’s original proposal. This is because it is going to be implemented earlier and faster, including retrospective rebates from April 2023. More

Green Party: Petition To Save Oil & Gas Ban

“The new Government’s plan to expand oil and gas exploration is as dangerous as it is unscientific. Whatever you think about the new government, there is simply no mandate to trash the climate. We need to come together to stop them,” says James Shaw. More

PSA: MFAT Must Reverse Decision To Remove Te Reo

MFAT's decision to remove te reo from correspondence before new Ministers are sworn in risks undermining the important progress the public sector has made in honouring te Tiriti. "We are very disappointed in what is a backward decision - it simply seems to be a Ministry bowing to the racist rhetoric we heard on the election campaign trail," says Marcia Puru. More
