Current roadworks around the airport

New dates for ‘Super Weekend’

The final ‘Super Weekend’ for the year has been rescheduled to run from 9pm Friday, 29 October to 5am Monday, 1 November. During that weekend, workers will be reconstructing the pavement of the GBMD / Tom Pearce Drive intersection.

Southbound traffic on GBMD will detour along Nixon Road to Tom Pearce Drive, while northbound traffic will travel in a single lane on GBMD.

Lane closure on George Bolt Memorial Drive

The left-hand southbound lane of George Bolt Memorial Drive has been closed while our teams complete surfacing and kerbside works. The closure runs from a point just north of the John Goulter Drive intersection down to Tom Pearce Drive.

There are still be two lanes open going southbound on GBMD, and traffic can turn into and out of John Goulter Drive and Tom Pearce Drive.

Traffic management is in place on Verissimo Drive at Auckland Airport.

This is to facilitate access to a drive-through vaccination centre operated by the Northern Region Health Coordination Centre at the Auckland Airport Park & Ride.

Key points to note:

  • 40,000sqm at Park & Ride will be used to manage queuing within the vaccination site
  • No right turn into Park & Ride – vaccination traffic will u-turn at the Verissimo Dr / Timberly Rd roundabout before entering vaccination site via dedicated left-hand lane.
  • No right before Verissimo Dr / Timberly Rd roundabout for traffic via SH20A intersection for tenants located:
    • On the eastern side of Verissimo Dr
    • Along Westney Rd.

We appreciate your support as we seek to ensure the public can get their vaccinations as quickly and easily as possible.


Roadworks underway

  • Take particular care at the intersection of George Bolt Memorial Drive and Tom Pearce Drive where important work is ongoing. Ensure you’re in the correct lane if making a turn.
  • Construction teams are working overnight on State Highway 20B / Puhinui Road to complete median island, barrier and landscaping works, between the hours of 9pm to 5am, Sunday to Thursday. Between those hours, stop/go traffic management will be used when necessary. No traffic management will be in place during daytime works.
  • Check the traffic and plan your journey so you can allow plenty of time to get to the airport.
