Expect delays on SH1 – Desert Road today


Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency advises that traffic management and a reduced speed limit is in place on SH1 south of Waiouru today for the recovery of a truck and trailer, which went into a ditch during recent snow weather.

Work to salvage the trailer and its products is underway this morning under one lane closure and stop/go traffic management. Road users should expect delays of up to 30 minutes.

Waka Kotahi apologies for the disruption and thanks road users for their patience.
