Update on roads after flooding

A number of roads are affected by flooding and slips in West Auckland.

Three local roads may be out of action for some time because of the extent of the damage.

On Te Henga Road, Waitakere, there are slips at a number of locations from Falls Road to Te Henga Quarry.

There are also multiple slips on Mountain Road, Henderson Valley, between Hayes Road and Turanga Road.

One lane of the road has collapsed on Lone Kauri Road, Karekare, outside number 38.

Other roads are closed while they are being assessed including Taupaki Road at the bridge, Pooks Road/Candia Road intersection, Bethells Road at Te Aute Ridge Road, Wintour Road in Waimauku, Whatapu Road in Huia and Huia Road near Huia Dam Road.

There may be other roads with flooding or debris including parts of Scenic Drive, Township Road in Waitakere and Piha Road, so please drive with extra care.

Auckland Transport hopes to have most of the flooded roads open, within a couple of days, once floodwaters have receded.

Detours will be clearly marked and warning notices will be in place to direct motorists away from closures.

A reminder that during Alert Level 4 only essential travel is allowed.
