State Highway 6 Nelson to Blenheim reopens

|

Road crews have managed to clear treefalls, slips, and debris that had forced the closure of this road overnight and today. This involved significant effort as not only did fallen trees have to be removed but so too did those at risk of falling onto the road.

The link between Nelson and Blenheim is open to traffic. However, the continuing bad weather means the risk of slips and treefalls remains. Road users should drive to the conditions and be prepared for delays. 

Clean-up work on state highways across the region continues. Waka Kotahi asks drivers to be alert to the presence of contractors and to follow temporary speed limits and traffic management at road work sites.
