Manukau Courier : February 1st 2011
8 MANUKAU COURIER, FEBRUARY 1, 2011 NEWS Bridge Protection Work East Tamaki to Highbrook NZTA_ETH MC_01 The NZ Transport Agency wishes to advise motorists there will be significant delays on SH1, northbound and southbound, between East Tamaki interchange and Highbrook interchange, starting the evening of Sunday 23 January. These closures will be in place so bridge protection work can be carried out on Bairds Road and East Tamaki bridges. The work will be carried out at night between the hours of 9pm and 5am, due to reduced traffic volumes and to minimise disruption to road users. We expect the work will take around 7 weeks to complete, and the following closures will be in place during this time: Week 1, 2 & 3 -- full closure northbound and southbound lanes -- follow signposted detours Weeks 4 - 7 -- one or more lanes closed northbound and southbound lanes -- motorway still open Please note that detours could add up to 5 minutes to standard journey times. For updates and information about these works, or any other motorway issues please call Auckland Motorways on 09 5200 200.
