Drivers in Auckland have a clear route on State Highway 1 at Newmarket: all the southbound lanes were reopened earlier than planned on Sunday morning.

Three of the four southbound motorway lanes on the Newmarket Viaduct were closed from 6pm on Saturday while work was done on connecting the new northbound and southbound links.

The Transport Agency says the overnight work was successful and the lanes have reopened.
