The full closure allows contractor Fulton Hogan to complete the works significantly faster than they would if traffic was moving alongside. This means less construction time and disruption overall. Detour routes will be signposted. Maps showing suggested detour routes are also available at www.aucklandtransport.govt.nz *Please note, in the event of bad weather, the road closure will roll to the next fine weekend. Thank you for your patience and cooperation while we upgrade this key arterial road.
