Driving this weekend:
The NZ Transport Agency says state highways will be busy this weekend, with slow moving queues of traffic likely north and south of the city. The long weekend is one of our busiest times of the year, and NZTA advise people to plan their trips to avoid delays.
 
To help people plan journeys, they can get up-to-date information about their route by signing up to www.onthemove.govt.nz.  Electronic signs along highways will help keep drivers informed of conditions ahead, and those driving between Auckland and Northland should consider using State Highway 16 to avoid congestion on SH1.
