Mo­torists warned of busy roads

Central Leader - - NEWS -

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 rugby league nines tour­na­ment, a con­cert by Amer­i­can rap­per Eminem at Western Springs on Satur­day is sold out, and the Auck­land Lan­tern Fes­ti­val cel­e­brat­ing Chi­nese New Year is be­ing held at Al­bert Park and Queen’s Wharf from Thurs­day un­til Sun­day.

NZ Trans­port Agency na­tional jour­ney man­ager Kathryn Musgrave says mo­tor­way in­ter­changes con­nect­ing with the city cen­tre will be par­tic­u­larly busy.

Elec­tronic mes­sages will keep mo­torists in­formed of driv­ing con­di­tions, but people should con­sider pub­lic trans­port, she says.
