Take extra care on roads in and around Wellington today


Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency is advising Wellington motorists to take extra care on the roads as crews continue work to clear debris following the heavy rain and flooding yesterday.

State Highway 2 is now open, but under a 50km/h speed restriction due to remaining surface flooding and debris.

Other parts of the lower North Island also experienced heavy rain and flooding yesterday, so there may be other areas where surface flooding and debris remain on the road.

Motorists are urged to take extra care, drive to the conditions and expect delays while crews continue working to restore the state highway network.
