The inside lane on Karangahape Rd was not blocked off on Sunday November 1, resulting in at least one near-miss.
Two straight ahead turning arrows at an intersection are causing confusion for central Auckland drivers.
A photo was shared on social media with a warning for cyclists and those on motorcycles to be careful at the intersection of Karangahape Rd/Great North Rd/Ponsonby Rd/Newton Rd.
One local witnessed a “very near miss” on November 1 when a car in the middle lane nearly side-swiped another car going straight ahead.
“Horns were tooted and I thought the person in front of me (turning left) was on their phone and not paying attention. Then I noticed the road markings,” they said.
Auckland Transport’s Mark Hannan said the issue occurred after a fence was moved which normally closes off the inside lane by the footpath.
He said the inside lane is closed as part of the continuing work to enhance Karangahape Rd.
