Travellers returning to Auckland Airport, as quarantine-free trans-Tasman travel resumes, are being told to expect a new road system with important construction on the transport network continuing since borders closed in March 2020.
Key points for drivers at Auckland Airport:
André Lovatt, General Manager Infrastructure, said: “We’re grateful for the patience of travellers as we know that driving around construction sites can disrupt journeys. We’ve passed major milestones on this project, and we know regular travellers will appreciate the robust transport network and high-occupancy vehicle lanes we’re delivering.”
High-occupancy vehicle lanes, new signals and a shared-use pathway are now operational on State Highway 20B / Puhinui Road as Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency and Auckland Airport near completion on this key part of the Southwest Gateway project. The new signals are located at the new intersections – Campana Road and Manukau Memorial Gardens.
The construction teams are continuing on site to complete median island, barrier and landscaping works. No traffic management will be in place during daytime works, except where necessary to support works on the road shoulders. Night-time stop/go traffic management will remain in place between the hours of 9pm to 5am, Sunday to Thursday.
New speed limits have also come into effect on this route:
Traffic speed limit changes on SH20B

Detours will be put in place while all lanes in both directions on George Bolt Memorial Drive are closed. We will be in touch closer to the dates of the planned closure with details of timings and detours.
