Road closures and traffic diversions in and around the Aotea Arts Quarter

Please ensure you factor in extra travel time if you are planning on coming to Auckland Live's city venues or the Aotea Arts Quarter.

From Sunday 23 February 2020 until early 2021, City Rail Network works will be affecting traffic and bus routes and access near and around Auckland Live’s inner-city venues and the Aotea Arts Quarter.

City-bound buses from the North Shore, West Auckland, and in the central Auckland will be diverted along Mayoral Drive or Victoria Street, depending on the route. You can find out more about these diversions here, or plan your public transport journey in advance here.

Sunday 1 March – early 2021

The intersection at Wellesley St West, Mayoral Drive, and Albert Street will be closed to all vehicles. Traffic diversions will be in place.

Access to carparks in the surrounding areas will be unaffected.

There will be traffic delays. Please ensure you factor in extra travel time if you are coming to Auckland Live’s city venues.
