Alternative routes into the city
People who drive into the city along Tamaki Drive, will face delays between 7am – 7pm throughout the duration of the works.
To avoid the construction related delays on Tamaki Drive, Auckland Transport advises city bound commuters from Glen Innes, Glendowie or Pt England to use public transport. If you do need to use your vehicle, AT suggests you avoid Tamaki Drive and use the following alternatives as these may get you to the city or motorways faster than along Tamaki Drive.
Orakei Road and Shore Road to Parnell and motorways
St Johns Road and Remuera Road to Newmarket and motorways
Tamaki Drive project start of work and traffic management
Work on the Tamaki Drive improvements and cycleway project, between Quay Street and the Ngapipi Bridge, is about to start. These works are likely to impact traffic flows during peak periods, however traffic management will be in place at all times. During construction, we will operate a ‘tidal flow’ traffic system to prioritise peak traffic flows.
Tidal Flow Traffic Management
The tidal flow traffic system is designed to improve traffic flows by having two lanes open during peak periods. On Tāmaki Drive, during morning peak there will be two lanes open heading toward the city, and during evening peak there will be two lanes open heading east. To avoid delays, you may want to change your route or, if you can, travel outside peak hours.
