BUSY ROADS FOR EASTER
Expect a busy weekend on the roads this Easter. NZTA said state highways in Auckland would be particularly busy late this week as the long weekend coincides with the start of school holidays. Drivers are urged to plan ahead to stay safe and avoid delays on the roads. Heading out of Auckland the traffic will start to build on State Highway 1 in both directions from mid-morning on Thursday through to about 8pm. It’s likely to remain heavy for much of Friday especially between Puhoi and Wellsford, on the Southern Motorway from Takanini and on State Highway 2 to Coromandel.
