Aucklanders should be ready for road closures, busy public transport and possible disruptions with two major events planned for this Sunday, 14 June. As well, this is the opening weekend for Commercial Bay at the bottom of Queen St.

The Black Lives Matter rally on Queen St will mean road closures and bus diversions in the central city from midday until around 5pm.

Queen St will be closed between Wakefield St and Customs St and Customs St will be closed between Lower Albert Street and Commerce Street.

The following bus services will be detoured: CITY LINK, INNER LINK, NX1,105, 106, 82, 923, 75, 30, 295, 309, 25B, 25L, 18, 195, 22N, 22R, 24B, 24R.

Meanwhile, at Eden Park, rugby is back with the Blues versus the Hurricanes match at 3.35pm.

Travel on trains, regular and special event buses to and from Eden Park is included with your match ticket.

A big crowd is expected for this first post-lockdown game in Auckland so there will be delays because of the large numbers.

If you’re heading to the game by bus try to avoid the central city and travel early. If you’re coming from the North Shore consider changing to the 20 service at Victoria Park. This bus goes to the Kingsland shops.
