Auckland Boat Show organisers have been advised that the Wynyard Crossing Bridge will not be in operation this weekend due to a breakdown.

They have been working with Eke Panuku and Auckland Transport who have confirmed they will provide a free shuttle bus service on Saturday and Sunday from Custom St East to the Auckland Boat Show in Wynyard Quarter 10am-6pm.

There will be x4 shuttle buses and Auckland Transport have a communication plan, signage etc that will be put in place shortly to advise the public of this service.

Visitors to the Show should look for special ambassadors based outside the Maritime Museum and outside the Boat Show advising the general public off this service.

The alternative is a 10 minute walk around the edge of the picturesque Viaduct Harbour to the Entrance at the Viaduct Events Centre (formerly the ETNZ base of the 2021 America's Cup).
