    Shoppers on the final weekend before Christmas will have to navigate a series of major road closures in downtown Auckland -- to clear the way for a projected 200-thousand America's Cup spectators

    Shoppers on the final weekend before Christmas will have to navigate a series of major road closures in downtown Auckland -- to clear the way for a projected 200-thousand America's Cup spectators

    While some business owners are looking forward to an influx of foot traffic -- others say the closures will lead to delivery disruptions.

    The Automobile Association's warning there'll be 'a lot of disruption'.

    The traffic management plan for the five days around the America's Cup Christmas regatta, held from December 15 to 20, reveals major road closures.

    The closures around Britomart and the Viaduct include Quay St, some of Customs St West, Lower Albert, Lower Hobson, Market Place, Viaduct Harbour Ave, and most of the Wynyard Quarter.
