Part of SH1 in Auckland to close for five nights

8:03 pm on 12 December 2010

State Highway One between the Auckland Harbour Bridge and Spaghetti Junction will close for five nights starting on Sunday for work on the Victoria Park tunnel.

The closures will be from 10.30pm until 5am and diversions will be in place.

Southbound traffic will be diverted from Shelly Beach Road and rejoin at Hobson Street, while northbound traffic will leave the motorway at Nelson Street and detour onto Curran Street.

Auckland's state highway manager, Tommy Parker, says all diversions will be fully sign-posted and no traffic delays are expected.
