Wellington Police truck protest update 3

1 min read

Wellington Police say trucks travelling in the convoy truck protest are expected to obey traffic signals.

Sixty trucks are currently heading south along Mana Esplanade on SH1. They will be stopped for lights on Mana Esplanade but police will marshall them through with pointstaff on the Whitford Brown interchange. Where there are traffic gaps police officers will signal for other motorists to go through.

Once through the interchange the trucks will be travelling in the 'fast' lane to try and keep feeder lanes free for commuters.

The 160 plus trucks in the Seaview convoy are now out onto State Highway 2 heading south from the Petone interchange.

Traffic is still bumper to bumper with lots of motorists trying to beat the early morning rush into the city.

Police thank motorists for their patience.
