How do I get to Picton/Blenheim?

People who need to get to or from Picton or Blenheim today should take the Lewis Pass route north of Christchurch, SH7, Waipara turnoff from SH1, then SH65, the Shenandoah Highway via Maruia, SH6 to Murchison then SH63 via St Arnaud to Blenheim. (Reverse for southbound).

There is Stop/Go management and temporary traffic lights in place west of Murchison due to the rockfall last week.
