People heading into central Auckland tomorrow can still expect significant delays despite much of the cordon around the SkyCity International Convention Centre which burned for three days having been lifted.

Victoria Street is open as normal but Wellesley Street will only be open to buses between Nelson and Hobson streets, and only two lanes will be open on both Nelson and Hobson.

All buses will return to their normal routes from tomorrow morning.

Auckland Transport is urging people to take public transport, carpool, walk or cycle to help reduce congestion.

Meanwhile, the Auckland District Court will re-open tomorrow after it was forced to close last Wednesday because of the SkyCity fire.

A court spokesperson said after checks and cleaning of air filter systems, the buildings are safe for people to return to.
