Traffic delays in Auckland as Nelson St remains closed

5:05 pm on 8 July 2019

Auckland commuters can expect delays once again tonight as Nelson Street remains closed.

It has been closed since Thursday after a 40 kilogram concrete panel fell from the Victoria apartment building.

Auckland Transport said a crane working on remedial work was staying onsite, with the road to remain closed until the middle of the week.

It said the wind had increased which may affect the timeframe for reopening.

Pedestrians can still use the street and bus routes are operating as normal.
