Waka Kotahi (NZTA) is advising motorists travelling southbound on the Auckland Harbour Bridge to expect delays due to the closure of the clip-on lanes.
The lanes will be closed for resurfacing and other maintenance from Boxing Day for up to ten days. This closure will affect the Shelley Beach off-ramp with access controlled by a stop/go managment system.
Motorists are encouraged to use the Western Ring route if there are delays on the bridge. Three lanes will be open to traffic in both directions says Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency Auckland System Manager, Andrea Williamson.
“The resurfacing process on the bridge requires 3-5 days to “cure” before allowing traffic on it, so while it may look as if nothing is happening the team will be using the lanes closure for other maintenance tasks, including water blasting and painting just below the road deck.”
Motorists are advised to check Waka Kotahi's social media sites for any updates on the lane closures during the 10 day period.
