Major works on the Northwestern Motorway
Thurs 2 April to Tues 7 April 2015 (Easter weekend)
Just in case your are staying in Auckland this weekend and were thinking about travelling to St Lukes or into the city here is some information about road closures and restrictions.
1. St Lukes Rd bridge closed from 8pm Thurs 2 Apr to 5am Tues 7 Apr
The St Lukes Road bridge will be closed to vehicles to safely build up the existing road levels and construct the approaches to the new, higher bridge. Pedestrian access across the bridge, the cycleway, motorway, local roads and public transport links in the area will remain open throughout the weekend.
Attractions such as MOTAT and Auckland Zoo will be unaffected and are open as usual with their planned events during the Easter weekend please see www.MOTAT.org.nz and www.aucklandzoo.co.nz for more information. Regular parking will be available.
2. Te Atatu interchange lane restrictions from 10pm Thurs 2 Apr to 5am Tues 7 Apr
In the Te Atatu area there will be a number of lane restrictions during the weekend. Both of the citybound onramps will be closed and the citybound motorway will be reduced to one lane during the day (5am to 10pm) and closed each night (10pm to 5am).
These closures are necessary to lower the Te Atatu citybound motorway on-ramp and raise a portion of the motorway, near the bridge.
Once open on Tuesday 7 April, the two left hand motorway lanes underneath Te Atatu Road overbridge will be moved slightly to the north with the third lane remaining in the same location. This will tie in with the recent citybound lane changes between Te Atatu and Rosebank Roads.
Detour routes and more information
The Northwestern cycleway will remain open throughout the weekend. More information about the closures and the detour routes are available on our website www.nzta.govt.nz/projects/wrr
