The Tākaka Hill highway linking Nelson and Motueka to Mohua/Golden Bay could remain closed today due to large slips blocking the route, says Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency. An update from the crews on site is expected around lunchtime today.
People who travel during daytime hours along the Upper Buller Gorge, SH6, will need to build in an extra 30 minutes from next week, 20 September. This work was scheduled to be done earlier but the recent Lockdown Level Four pushed it out.
Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency is advising drivers to check their routes around the South Island/Te Wai Pounamu today as gale force winds have brought down trees and power lines across several highways, particularly in North Canterbury.
