UPCOMING WORKS (dates may be subject to change)
 
Monday 18 September - Tuesday 19 September - Night closure of the full motorway southbound from the Manukau Interchange to the Takanini Interchange. This includes closure of the Redoubt Road on-ramp, Lambie Drive eastbound on-ramp and SH20 - SH1 link. 
Sunday 17 September - Monday 18 September - Night closure of the southbound on-ramp at the Takanini Interchange.
 
ALREADY IN PLACE
 
Narrowed lanes and 80 km/h speed limit northbound on the motorway between the Papakura Interchange and Hill Road. 
Narrowed lanes and 80 km/h speed limit southbound on the motorway between Orams Road and the Papakura Interchange. 
Full closure of Orams Road Bridge to all traffic and pedestrians. 
Narrowed lanes and 50 km/h speed limit both directions on Great South Road at Takanini Interchange, between the northbound off-ramp and the southbound on-ramp. 
 
To construct an additional fourth southbound lane from SH20 to Hill Road, the eastern span of Orams Road Bridge will be lengthened. Orams Road Bridge will be temporarily closed to all pedestrians and traffic while this work takes place from April 22 to October 2017.
Work during the night will allow our crews to operate equipment safely while adjacent to the existing traffic lanes. Work in the shoulder and median work zones will continue during the daytime, but this will not affect traffic movements.
 
Night closures are typically from 10pm at night to 5am in the morning. Detours will be in place to take motorists along local roads, leading back to the next motorway interchange. All detours will be clearly signposted, and maps of the typical routes can be found on our website at http://www.nzta.govt.nz/projects/southern-corridor-improvements/traffic-notices/.  Please allow extra time for your journey at night.
 
With the lanes narrowed, there is less time to react to other vehicles and it is important that motorists keep to the posted 50-80 km/h speed limit past our work areas. There will be ongoing truck and project vehicle movements accessing the shoulder and median work sites. Keeping both motorists and our team members safe as possible is imperative and we need everyone's help to do this.
 
As always, we will be doing our best to minimise effects of these works on the public as much as we can.
 
We thank you for your patience as we work to improve journey reliability and safety along the Southern Corridor.
