The building where our contact centre is based has been evacuated so our 0800 numbers cannot be answered at this time. 0800 4 HIGHWAYS is operating for travel-related queries only and other numbers will re-open as soon as possible. For more information read our latest media release.
The NZ Transport Agency advises that State Highway 15 Patotai/Opouteke Road is now open.
However due to flooding in the area road users are advised to drive with extreme care. Crews are continuing to work across the highway network to clear debris.
The NZ Transport Agency works to create transport solutions for all New Zealanders – from helping new drivers earn their licences, to leading safety campaigns to investing in public transport, state highways and local roads.
