Residents are forced to leave their cars at home due to increasing traffic

The horrible traffic in Auckland is forcing motorists to leave their cars at home.

Traffic in Auckland

A lot of people think Nigeria has the worst traffic in the world.

This is certainly false.

According to 3news, the traffic situation in  auckland has escalated to a point where motorists have to abandon their cars at home.

This is due to a major construction on the City Rail Link that will start in November.

"If you're going into the city centre, we recommend you plan your journey using AT Metro buses, trains and ferries,"  Auckland Transport said.

Unfortunately, this is not the only construction that could affect traffic.

These projects include the development of a 30-storey office complex starting in November, two commercial builds at Wynyard Quarter, both starting at the same time and a new tower in mid 2016.

However, Auckland Transport spokesman, Mark Hannan, is still optimistic about the situation.

"We wouldn't want to get too into scare-mongering. We're talking about possible extra traffic delays of a couple of minutes and we have to meet certain criteria to make sure that's what's happening. People may just have to change their mode or their route."
