A car hit a gas main near Abbey Lane cafe on Great South Rd in Greenlane on Monday at around 9pm.

The police closed the road for an hour while Vector switched off the gas main. ROAD WORKS
The southbound exit at the Dominion Road interchange on Auckland’s Southwestern Motorway will be closed for two weekends later this month as part of work to build another lane. The southbound exit lane will be totally shut from midday on Friday 9 December until 5am on Monday 12 December, and during the same times the following weekend, 16-19 December. The closures affect only the southbound exit. All other on and off ramps at Dominion Rd will remain open. Drivers most affected by the closures are those joining the start of Southwestern Motorway at Maioro Street who exit two kilometres further south at Dominion Road.
