Panmure traffic shifts to new bridge
23 November 2012
Ellerslie-Panmure Highway traffic will begin using a new bridge from Sunday 25 November.
Diversions will be in place from 9pm Saturday 24 to 8am Sunday 25 November while work to shift traffic from the existing bridge to the new bridge next to it is completed.
Pedestrians will also be able to use the new bridge, however please check the map for changes to walking routes around the station. Moving traffic to the new bridge will allow the demolition and construction of a new higher and longer Ellerslie-Panmure Highway bridge.
Traffic will use this new bridge until about August 2013 while the work is carried out. The new bridge will be used in the future for buses to arrive at the entrance to the new Panmure Station building.
If there are weather disruptions the work will be carried out on the night of Sunday 25 November, with the bridge opening Monday, instead.

AMETI project team thanks drivers
Thank you for your patience and support while major traffic changes were put in place on Ellerslie-Panmure Highway. The introduction of the diversion via Forge Way and Mountain Rd has been successful, with traffic generally flowing well through the area and drivers getting used to the lane changes fairly quickly.
This diversion will remain in place until about August 2013.
It allows us to demolish the current Ellerslie-Panmure Highway traffic bridge and build a new one, as well as work on the new Panmure Station building.
Night works for traffic shift to new bridge
10 November 2012
Roadworks at night are necessary from this Sunday 11 November to prepare for shifting traffic to the new Ellerslie-Panmure Highway bridge.
There will be noise and vibration from paving equipment and a number of trucks using Forge Way. We apologise in
advance for any disruption caused. Doing this work now, before traffic starts using the busway bridge, will reduce the amount of more disruptive work in this intersection next year.
The work also involves some night time traffic diversions and right turn restrictions at the Ellerslie-Panmure Highway/Forge Way intersections. See the map for more detail.
Ellerslie-Panmure Highway - closed at night between Forge Way and Panmure roundabout:
Ellerslie-Panmure Highway/Forge Way intersection - no right turns into Forge Way or into the Burger King/AMF Bowling service lane at all times Wednesday 14 to 8am Sunday 25 November. This is to prepare for aligning the intersection and the new bridge.
On the night of Saturday 24 November, the road closures are needed to divert the road onto the new bridge. Some paving work is needed at the roundabout end.
This work will happen on Sunday night if weather is poor on Saturday night.
If there are no weather disruptions, Ellerslie-Panmure Highway traffic will be using the new bridge from 8am on Sunday 25 November.
They will continue using this bridge, built for a future busway, until about August 2013 when the replacement Ellerslie-Panmure Highway bridge is complete.
Traffic layout changes in Panmure from 28 October 2012 to August 2013
Important information for commuters who drive north or east through Panmure roundabout.
Major changes to road layouts on Ellerslie-Panmure Highway will be in place from 28 October to prepare for the demolition of the highway bridge and its replacement. Lanes eastbound will be reduced from two to one and a diversion will be in place for Jellicoe Rd and Glen Innes traffic.
If you are heading north to Jellicoe Rd/Glen Innes, use the left lane and follow the diversion via Forge Way and Mountain Rd bridge
If heading east to Panmure town centre or Pakuranga, traffic will be reduced to one lane approaching Panmure roundabout. Please use the right hand lane on Ellerslie-Panmure Highway and continue to come through the roundabout.
Buses and trucks for all destinations should also use the right lane.
Traffic heading south or west from Glen Innes/Jellicoe Rd, Panmure, Pakuranga and Howick will continue to come through the roundabout and on Ellerslie-Panmure Highway. There will be still be two lanes westbound.
Speeds are restricted to 30km through the area.
In late November traffic will be shifted to a new Ellerslie-Panmure Highway bridge next to the old one.
The changes to traffic will be in place until about August 2013 while the new higher and longer Ellerslie-Panmure Highway bridge is built.
