The NZ Transport Agency is asking the community for their views on a proposed roundabout at the intersection of State Highway 1 and Elles Road in Invercargill, to increase safety and reduce crashes at this high risk intersection.
Heavy rain in Canterbury created fresh slips on the two roads into Kaikoura yesterday and today, with both roads, Route 70 via Waiau and Mt Lyford, and State Highway 1 south via Cheviot, closed this morning.
The NZ Transport Agency advises of the following closures for motorway improvements. Closures start at 9pm and finish at 5am, unless otherwise stated. Work delayed by bad weather will be completed at the next available date, prior to Friday, 29 September 2017. Please note this Traffic Bulletin is updated every Friday.
The NZ Transport Agency advises motorists that the State Highway 1 (SH1) Princes Street southbound off-ramp will be closed on Tuesday, 19th and Wednesday 20th September 2017, for urgent repairs to a damaged guardrail.
Drivers on the Alternate Route between Picton and Christchurch will be detoured to Reefton this morning and possibly this afternoon after a two-truck crash on SH65, the Shenandoah Highway, earlier today. The detour adds another hour-and-a-half to the overall journey.
