The parade is due to take place in the city centre about 12.30pm and roads will likely be heavily congested or impassable before, during and after the event.

AT says the City Link bus service will not be operating between 10am and 3pm but additional buses will be added to key routes to cope with increased demand.

Diversions will be in place on some roads.

Trains will operate normally but will run six-car sets every 20 minutes between 10am and 3pm, with the exception of the Onehunga line.

Some additional ferry services will also be operated but delays are expected on those due to the sail by from Viaduct Basin past North Wharf, Princes Wharf and Queens Wharf.
