Traffic will be heavy on highways out of Christchurch and some parts of the South Island this weekend as people head off for Easter. The NZ Transport Agency is asking drivers to plan ahead to avoid delays and enjoy a safe trip.
The NZ Transport Agency reopened State Highway 1 south of Kaikoura earlier this morning. It was planned to reopen the highway tomorrow ready for the Easter traffic, however enough debris has been cleared behind the protective container wall near the Paratitahi Tunnels to open a day early, says Steve Mutton, Transport Agency Earthquake Recovery Manager.
