The Victoria Park
Viaduct is a major motorway viaduct carrying the Auckland
Northern Motorway (State Highway 1) over the Victoria Park area in Auckland City
, New Zealand
. Construction began in 1959, and the bridge was opened on 5 April 1962.Due to the high traffic volumes passing through on their way to and from North Shore City, and because the viaduct is only four lanes wide in total (while adjacent motorway stretches are at least six lanes), the bridge over the park is considered "one of the country's worst traffic bottlenecks", with around 200,000 vehicles a day.
