The NZ Transport Agency has reopened State Highway 1 (SH1) north of Kaikōura - one year, one month and one day after the Kaikōura earthquake in November 2016, allowing people to drive through from Picton to Christchurch on the coastal highway route.
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, 22 December 2017. Please note this Traffic Bulletin is updated every Friday.
The New Zealand Transport Agency is re-examining the Petone to Grenada (P2G) Link Road project to ensure the project will deliver the best possible outcomes, particularly in terms of resilience to major events such as earthquakes and storms.
In advance of the reopening of State Highway 1 north of Kaikōura tomorrow the NZ Transport Agency is urging people to be aware of the night time closure hours which will apply to two sections of road just north and south of Kaikōura.
