The Auckland Motorway Alliance (AMA) has won New Zealand’s premier road safety award with a simple but effective modification of traffic signals to stop motorists driving the wrong way on to Auckland motorways.
The NZ Transport Agency will be temporarily closing the Waiho Bridge over four weeks at night from 25 March (this Sunday night). The four weeks of night-time closures will run from Sunday to Friday each week, 25 March to 20 April, 10 pm to 6 am.
The NZ Transport Agency advises motorists of a revised plan for night time closures on State Highway 1 south of Whangarei to repair and resurface the three Mata Bridges. The start of works has been cancelled again tonight because of bad weather.
The NZ Transport Agency advises motorists to allow extra time when travelling on State Highway 1 in Mid and South Canterbury early this week as an annual bridge inspection programme gets underway in the area.
