More Manukau Changes


More road changes in Manukau because of the problems.

This time changes to Wiri Station Road in Manukau from Labour Weekend.

The eastbound lanes of Wiri Station Road will be closed between Lambie Drive and Davies Avenue from 9pm Friday .

Then from 9pm Friday 29 October Wiri Station Road will be closed in both directions between Lambie Drive and Davies Avenue, and will remain closed until early December.

People can access Manukau City Centre and the Westfield Mall via Lambie Drive and Ronwood Avenue. Signposted detours and electronic signs will be in place to help with directions.

A new section of Manukau Station Road will be opened from Monday November 1 . This new road will give motorists a direct connection from the Manukau City Centre to Lambie Drive Interchange and the new SH20 motorway.

The NZTA is expecting to complete the work without disrupting shoppers using the mall.

NZTA’s State Highways Manager for Auckland Tommy Parker says: We’re aiming to get the bulk of the final construction work done now so that our project team can be out of the area well before the busy Christmas shopping period in December. We’re ensuring that the main entrances to the mall and carpark are kept open at all times during the changes to the local roads.

At the SH1-20 Interchange, a new SH1 to SH20 ramp was opened today. This short link runs underneath Redoubt Road and provides a direct connection to the SH20 westbound lanes.

At the same time there will be road layout changes on SH1 approaching Redoubt Road off-ramp. Mr Parker says motorists should drive with care to ensure they are in the correct lane.

The $220M Manukau Extension motorway connects the SH20 and SH1 at Manukau City. It is being opened progressively in three stages until December.

    I read in the Papakura courier that they currently have closed one of the lanes to ease merging congestion and will consider a third lane to Takanini if there is still problems.
