TRAFFIC: Due to major traffic delays expected in central Auckland, we are advising Aucklanders to avoid unnecessary travel into the city centre," says Auckland Transport spokesperson John Nottage.
"If you can work from home or from a non-central location, or start work later in the day, we recommend you do so. More updates here.
