Auckland City Council - City Scene - News In Brief
SHORE RD INTERSECTION
An end is in sight to traffic hold-ups at the Upland/Orakei/Shore Road intersection, where widening and upgrading work has been carried out over the past five months.
Completion of the project is expected towards the end of November, as scheduled.
The $600,000 project involved extensive work to move underground services.
Once this is finished this month, all that remains is the completion of Orakei Road widening and construction of the roundabout.
