George Bolt Memorial Drive, the main route into the airport, is scheduled to close from 8pm to 5am on five consecutive nights in both northbound and southbound directions from Tuesday, 27 October through to the morning of Sunday, 1 November.
During this period, detours providing access to both terminals and all areas of the airport precinct will be in place each night from 8pm until 5am the following morning. Outside of these hours, the road will be reopened to its recent layout with access in both northbound and southbound directions. This is to allow for the safe removal of an overhead gantry and the installation of three new wayfinding gantries.
The following detours will be in place:
Access to and from the Airport Shopping Centre will be via Leonard Isitt Drive:
Entry to airport shopping centre
Exiting airport shopping centre
Access to and from Manu Tapu Drive will be via Tahinga Lane:
This project is part of the Northern Network, one of Auckland Airport’s key infrastructure developments, designed to ensure reliable access to the airport and create a resilient road network to meet future needs. We’re getting on with this important work now while there’s less traffic on the roads.
Please plan your journey, allow extra time for the journey, and obey all traffic management instructions on signage and, or from the site staff.
Access to Manu Tapu Drive
Work continues on George Bolt Memorial Drive as part of the Northern Network transport project. All southbound and northbound lanes (two lanes in either direction) between Ihumātao Rd, Manu Tapu roundabout and Tom Pearce Drive have shifted west. This road layout will be in place until further notice.
Other works include:
Pedestrians walking along the eastern side of George Bolt Memorial Drive are not able to cross at the signal lights at the Tom Pearce Drive intersection (see map below). Workers will be on site to stop traffic and direct pedestrians to cross via the western side of George Bolt Memorial Drive. Works will be underway until late-October.
A four-way, Stop/Go traffic-management plan will be in place on the roundabout intersection of Geoffrey Roberts Road and Laurence Stevens Drive from Monday, 28 September until Friday, 16 October.
Traffic will be reduced to one lane at the roundabout, and the speed limit on the four approaches to the roundabout will be reduced to 30kp/h.
During the three-week period scheduled for works, this traffic-management plan will remain in place Monday to Saturday, from 8am to 5pm. Outside of these hours, traffic flows will operate as normal.
