  • We are currently on the cycle network to check the widespread damage of Cyclone Gabrielle, as we simply were not able to earlier due to the wind. We see many fallen trees and branches across the whole network, so please take extreme care and do not attempt to crawl or pass any fallen tree, they can be extremely unstable. Please report any issue to Auckland Transport Contact Centre or through Twitter.

Keep a lookout for debris and fallen trees on the road, and as always drive to the conditions.
