Auckland drivers warned of motorway delays

6:18 am on 28 January 2012

The Transport Agency is warning Auckland drivers of delays when it closes a section of the city's southern motorway on Saturday.

The closure is to allow work on the new northbound Newmarket Viaduct to be completed.

The northbound lanes will be closed between the Market Road off-ramp and the Gillies Avenue on-ramps from 5pm.

Auckland State Highways Acting Manager Steve Mutton, says detours will be in place but drivers should still be prepared for long delays.
