Plan ahead for major SH1 southbound delays
Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency is advising drivers to be prepared for major delays southbound on the Northern Motorway on Sunday 28 November and Sunday 5 December and if possible, avoid the Albany and Rosedale area while the Northern Corridor Improvements project team complete necessary work.
During this time, the team will be completing a concrete pour for the SH1 to SH18 underpass connection. Whilst the material cures (sets), we need to ensure that the vibration from passing traffic remains low.
To ensure this can happen, a 50km per hour speed limit will be in place in the immediate area. Temporary lane barriers will also detour vehicles around either side of the concrete pour to help move the traffic as far away from the setting concrete as possible.
So that the temporary lane barriers can be installed prior to the work on Sunday and then removed afterwards, a full southbound closure of SH1 between Greville Road and Constellation Drive will be in place over Saturday and Sunday nights.
