Auckland shoppers cause motorway chaos

08 June 2006

The country’s largest shopping centre opened in Auckland today and immediately created traffic chaos on the southern motorway.

Bargains, including a 36cm colour television for $49.95, and a brand name cordless jug and toaster for $30, sent thousands of shoppers to the Sylvia Park Mall in Mt Wellington, near the southern motorway.

Within an hour or so the roads were unable to cope with traffic volumes.

The southern motorway was gridlocked. Police closed two motorway off ramps leading into the complex and advised motorists to avoid the area completely or delay their trip as long as they could.

I can’t even imagine what the inside of that mall must have looked like. A blimmin’ riot, that’s what. Also it’s usually at times like these that zombie epidemics break out with disastrous results. Loonies!
