The NZ Transport Agency has confirmed that State Highway 1 north of Auckland between Pūhoi and Orewa has reopened following a police incident.
Auckland Transport Operations Centre Manager Rua Pani wants to thank road users for their patience and understanding.
“We realise the inconvenience this will have caused for many road users and the significant impact it may have had on Easter travel plans,” Ms Pani says.
“Many road users will want to get on with their travel plans all at the same time now, so we advise motorists to plan their journeys and to check the latest travel updates on the NZTA website and social media accounts before setting off.”
The Auckland Motorway Alliance had planned road works tonight from 8pm to 8am on SH1 Oteha Valley to Silverdale, but in light of the delays today, they have been postponed until tomorrow.
