Traffic on sections of the motorway network is likely to be heavy this weekend as tens of thousands of people descend on Auckland for three large events. A full house is expected at Eden Park for the NRL Nines tournament, a concert by American rapper Eminem at Western Springs on Saturday is sold out, and the Auckland Lantern Festival is at Albert Park and Queens Wharf. The St Lukes interchange on the northwestern motorway and motorway interchanges connecting with the city centre will be particularly busy. Parking will be tricky anywhere near the venues and public transport is recommended. Go to highwayinfo.govt.nz for traffic updates or onthemove.govt.nz to plan your route.
