A car hit a gas main near Abbey Lane cafe on Great South Rd in Green­lane on Mon­day at around 9pm. North­ern Fire Ser­vice spokesman Colin Un­der­down said one per­son was taken to Auck­land Hos­pi­tal in a se­ri­ous con­di­tion. There were no other re­ported in­juries. 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.
