Dynamic lanes use overhead signs and on road lights (cats eyes) to change the direction of centre lanes at peak times, improving traffic flow.
In 2018, AT installed dynamic lanes on Whangaparaoa Road, saving road users up to seven minutes. In late 2019, we will install dynamic lanes on Redoubt Road in Manukau.
They already operate in Auckland on Panmure Bridge, Auckland Harbour Bridge, and Whangaparaoa Road.
Safety is a key priority for us with independent safety checks undertaken and close monitoring of the lanes to continue throughout.
We have followed international best practice in designing both the Whangaparaoa and Redoubt Road dynamic lanes.

Whangaparaoa Road dynamic lanes trial
