Lanes on Harbour Bridge close as 'severe wind gusts' hit Auckland

  • 03/02/2024

Some lanes are closed on the Auckland Harbour Bridge as "severe wind gusts" lash the city. 

MetService said strong westerlies, gusting up to 80km/h in exposed places, were expected in Auckland before easing on Saturday night. 

As a result, the NZ Transport Agency Waka Kotahi has closed lanes on Saturday afternoon and reduced speed limits on the bridge. 

Waka Kotahi said motorists should expect delays. 

High-sided vehicles and motorcycles should consider the alternative Western Ring route via State Highways 18 and 16, the agency added.
