Great South Road update
Work is continuing on Great South Road to improve traffic flows around and through the Takanini Interchange. The road is being widened and the median traffic islands are being reshaped to improve motorway access. New shared use paths are also taking shape on both sides of the road through the interchange.
In July pavement layers were laid in the widened eastbound lane between Spartan Road and the Stevensons concrete yard. Widening earthworks are continuing from Spartan Road to the southbound off-ramp, following extensive works on the relocation of essential service lines.
Streetside trees along Great South Road have been removed in preparation for the widening of the westbound approach to the southbound on-ramp, which will go ahead during August.
Work is continuing on the southbound off-ramp and on-ramp areas around the Great South Road intersection. Resurfacing will continue on the northbound off-ramp intersection with Great South Road, and off and on-ramp traffic will be separated by a new median barrier.
This intersection is being moved to ease southbound on-ramp access and is expected to be ready for opening in September, weather-permitting.
