Rain starts on the West Coast (Monday afternoon) - drivers need to be vigilant overnight and Tuesday

|

The NZ Transport Agency asks all road users to be vigilant on the South Island’s West Coast highways and roads overnight and into Tuesday with forecast rain having started this afternoon.

Minor surface flooding has been reported in some places between Haast and Ross, State Highway 6. More significant falls are forecast for Tuesday travelling north up the coast and potentially into Arthur’s Pass area.

“The Transport Agency’s crews are maintaining a watch on State Highway 6 and the wider West Coast network including SH73 Arthur’s Pass in case the rain intensifies overnight,” says Transport Agency Network Manager Colin Hey. “If you are on the road tonight and tomorrow, please keep your speeds down, and watch out for speed restrictions and road crews. Use your lights.”
