Severe wind gusts have caused speed limit reductions and closed lanes for a second time on Auckland’s Harbour Bridge this afternoon.

An NZTA spokesperson said that a temporary full closure may be required if winds gust over 90km/h.

“High-vehicles and motorcycles should consider using the Western Ring Route (SH18/SH16).”

MetService described the wind as “strong”, with gusts of up to 83km/h across the bridge.
