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, 4th May 2018. Please note this Traffic Bulletin is updated every Friday.
The NZ Transport Agency reminds road users that State Highway 1 through Kaikōura, between Picton and Christchurch, will re-open for night-time travel from Monday, 30 April. This is the first time the highway will be open 24/7 since the November 2016 earthquake.
Flexible safety barriers to help prevent people dying or being seriously injured in a crash and rumble strips to give drivers a wake-up call if they stray across the line are amongst improvements people would like to see on State Highway 1 through Mid-Canterbury.
