Hi There, Over the past 6 weeks or so there has been extremely heavy traffic on Neilson Street. From 15.30 onward the traffic starts to build waiting to get through the lights on Neilson Street and Church Street heading East. It has not been normal to have stationary queues all the way back to Captain Springs Road, but this is now the norm from about 4pm. This is grid locking both directions and has added significant frustration to staff and customers alike. I accept traffic is part of Auckland but when it starts affecting customer retention it becomes and important issue. It is also causing trucks to bolt down the median barrier to get to Toll and out of toll where they force there way into the traffic. Cars are under passing on the left had side when there is only a single lane between Angle street and Toll. Please could you investigate and if possible remedy the situation to save the sanity of all concerned.
