The NZ Transport Agency is advising if you are in Wellington please stay in town and listen to radio or social media for updates. Avoid all unnecessary travel.

Due to severe flooding and slips the following roads are closed:

  • SH58 from SH1 Paremata to Haywards Interchange at SH2
  • Grays Road
  • Paekakariki Hill Road
  • SH2 between Ngauranga and Petone is closed northbound. Currently open southbound but congested and motorists should avoid travel on this route. There may be a short closure southbound to help alleviate flooding.
  • SH1 between Mackays Crossing and Paremata – closed northbound and southbound.

There are slips and surface flooding along State Highway 1 between Johnsonville and Porirua so if travel is necessary on this route, motorists should take extra care, watch following distances and speed.
