The Waikato District Council Mayor is sceptical roadworks on State Highway 1 south of Auckland will be complete before the borders open up.

The night works between Rangiriri and Ohinewai are set to occur from Sunday to the following Friday. 

Waka Kotahi's told Newstalk ZB it aims to have work complete before Auckland's border lifts next Wednesday.

Allan Sanson told Heather du Plessis-Allan he doesn't believe the work will finish in time.

“Best laid plans. Originally they had six nights pencilled in, they're trying to do it in half the time now and I actually think they're gonna get caught short.”
