Southern Motorway Tecoma St Ramps Closed Early October
Southern Motorway Tecoma St ramps closed early October
The Tecoma Street on and off ramps to State Highway 1 at Ellerslie will be closed to all traffic for the first two weeks in October as part of work to build noise walls in the area.
The NZ Transport Agency is installing concrete sound barriers next to the motorway to reduce traffic noise and disturbance to people living nearby.
High traffic volumes mean the ramp closures are needed to protect motorists and crew who’ll be working in the area.
The work, which is dependent on fine weather, will take place from Saturday 30th September until Sunday 15 October.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused by these important infrastructure upgrades and thank you for your patience and understanding.
The noise walls through the Ellerslie section of the motorway are expected to be completed by February next year.
More information about the programme to install noise walls is available on the project websitehttps://www.nzta.govt.nz/projects/sh1-ellerslie-acoustic-barrier/
