SH1 at Cape Reinga reopens


Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency advises that State Highway 1 at Cape Reinga has reopened to traffic.

The road was closed Wednesday night from the Cape Reinga carpark to Tāpotupotu Road because of a large scrub fire. It remained closed throughout the day.  

A decision that it was safe to reopen the road was made at 5pm. 

The Department of Conservation says the fire is now out.
