Traffic Heavy On SH1 Leaving Auckland

The NZ Transport Agency reports that traffic is heavy on both the Northern and Southern Motorways going out of Auckland.

On SH1 north of Auckland there is a 15 kilometre long queue stretching from Warkworth back to Puhoi. The NZTA advises that motorists will experience delays of up to an hour if they are on the road at the moment.

Motorists should delay their journey if they can, or take the alternative route north on SH16. This route is signposted from the Silverdale Interchange on SH1 or can be accessed from the Northwestern Motorway.

On the Southern Motorway, traffic is also heavy and motorists can expect delays of up to 30 minutes.

The NZTA says traffic has grown earlier than usual with people taking advantage of the good weather to leave the city earlier for the long weekend.
