Following a series of earthquakes and aftershocks throughout Monday 14 November, the NZ Transport Agency is continuing to assess state highways across the top of the South Island and where possible, safely reopen parts of the highway closed by slips.
The NZ Transport Agency has released information from the first phase of its investigation into possible improvements to State Highway 1 Picton to Christchurch. The investigation focusses on the area between Picton in Marlborough and the Ashley River Bridge in Canterbury.
Summer weather is on its way, which means barbeques, backyard cricket and baches. It also signals the start of the summer roadworks season with crews busy doing repairs, resurfacing and maintenance work on Nelson and Tasman’s state highways.
