The Summer Road Reno

Every year, we maintain and upgrade the city's transport infrastructure, including roads, footpaths, road signs, bus shelters and street lights across Tāmaki Makaurau / Auckland. 

We are constantly out on the network. However, resurfacing work, such as chipsealing, which can only happen during summer when the weather is more dry and settled.

Key locations to upgrade

During the upcoming summer season we will be working on hundreds of sites across the region. Some of these will be small and localised while others will be more significant and take place on some of our major roads. 

We have selected significant sites to work on starting in December 2023, based on location (mostly regional and arterial roads), contract area (for regional diversity) and length of the works. 

Note that factors such as weather can delay the start of planned roadworks.

We have set up two detours in place to help the flow of traffic. Lincoln road will be reduce down to one lane during the 3 weeks of works.

From 3 to 9 January only one lane of Southbound traffic (towards Henderson) will be able to use Lincoln Road.

The detours will follow these routes:

  • Woodford road to Buscomb Ave to Wadier Place to meet up with Great North road (and the same way back again).
  • Swanson road to Rathgar Road and along Pomaria road (and the same way back again). We will have active VMS boards that will be directing you to the detour that has the least amount of traffic using it. Please remember to plan your journeys accordingly and allow for extra travel time during this period.

Note that the concrete will need time to set before we put machinery on it and go to the next stages of construction. As a result of this you will notice less activity on site after the concrete pours.

We will need to close Whitford Park Road between 231 Whitford Park Road and Polo Lane and set up detours. Please plan ahead and think about using another route. We’ll set up signs that give traffic directions for surrounding roads.

If you live somewhere along a closed road, traffic controllers at either end of the road will help you. Please follow all signs, light signals and traffic controller directions.

A Full Road Closure is necessary to ensure the safety of our workers and members of the public.

This closure will commence 7am, 9th January to 7pm, 26th January 2024. Cemetery Bridge will not be passable.

  • All residents and businesses north of Cemetery Bridge up to 231 Whitford Park Road are required to enter and exit from Sandstone Road end.
  • All residents and businesses south of Cemetery Bridge, 238 to 401 Whitford Park Road are required to enter and exit from Brookby Road end.

Further works will continue from 30th January until end of March under a stop/go traffic operation. We will provide more details soon.

How roadworks may impact you

Speed limits: Your safety is important to us so please reduce your speed and follow the signs, light signals and traffic directions while driving through the area. This also helps protect our roading staff. 

Road closures: Plan ahead and think about using other routes if a road is closed. We will set up signs and have traffic controllers on the road to help you out. 

Parking: You might not be able to use your usual parking space during the roadworks, or drive onto or out of your property. We will let you know about access issues before we start working, and try our best to get such work done as quickly as possible. 

Commuting: Bus stops and footpaths might move, but you will see signs and routes that tell you where the new ones are. You can also ask a traffic controller for directions.

Flood recovery works will continue

We will continue with our flood recovery works, and renew the remaining 500 sites that were impacted in the January/February 2023 storm events.

Be kind while we work 

We understand that roadworks can be disruptive for you, but please be patient and be kind to our workers on the road. 

We try our best to minimise noise, especially at night, and get the work done quickly. Rebuilding and repairing can also be dusty, and we try to use water trucks where we can to dampen the road and reduce the amount of dust.  

Remember that our workers are on the road so they can make driving, walking and commuting a better experience for you.
