Harbour Bridge Speed Restrictions Start Sunday (& other weekend disruptions)


Speed restrictions on the Auckland Harbour Bridge approaches come into effect on Sunday night.vic

Workers will be out in force from then from the south end of the Auckland Harbour Bridge to Fanshawe Street so a speed limit of 70km/h will apply and lane widths will be reduced.

Drivers are also asked to choose their correct south bound lane early after leaving the harbour bridge to help reduce the risk of congestion. The transport agency says it will try to keep all lanes open during the day throughout the working week but there’ll be some work-related lane closures at night or on weekends when traffic volumes were not high.

The project includes providing a southbound bus shoulder lane will be provided along St Mary’s Bay and a pedestrian /cyclist footbridge over the motorway linking St Mary’s Bay to Westhaven .

When the project is completed southbound motorists would be able to stay in the same lane from the Harbour Bridge to the city, the Southern Motorway or the Northern Motorway, removing the need for difficult and dangerous merging and lane-changing through St Mary’s Bay. The project will also eliminate the current northbound gridlock in the afternoon peak period at the viaduct.

While work has already begun at St Mary’s Bay, full construction of the tunnel will not start until early next year. The widening at St Mary’s Bay is part of the first stage  of the project.
