Drivers are advised to expect significant delays getting through Templeton west of Christchurch thismorning as the highway was earlier closed due to a crash. Given the busy time of the morning, traffic is backed up.
Note: an earlier Transport Agency report recorded a motorcyclist involved in this crash – it is a two car collision.
A crash between two cars this afternoon has affected State Highway 88 at St Leonards, Dunedin. A detour using local roads is available for cars/light vehicles, however, there is no alternate route for heavy vehicles.
The NZ Transport Agency reminds all drivers heading towards Aoraki/ Mt Cook this weekend to build in some extra time. There will be marathon runners and cyclists on this scenic highway both Saturday and Sunday, 8 am to 2 pm.
