WESTERN RING ROUTE
Big directional changes are coming to the Western Ring Route ahead of the opening of the Waterview Tunnel in April. To cater for these changes, a new Western Ring Route and direction system will be installed on around a dozen signs across Auckland motorways. A total of 280 signs will be updated or installed before the new tunnel opens. The biggest change is that the signs will not necessarily reflect the compass direction which is what motorists are used to.
