Continued impact of ex-Cyclone Gita
Further to our earlier updates, we have received advice today that road and rail disruptions are likely to continue for some time yet.
It is expected that State Highway 1 near Kaikoura will be closed until early next week, and rail links between Kaikoura and Blenheim are unlikely to be reinstated for at least two weeks. There are also still delays caused by slips in the Golden Bay Region, and services in and out of Wellington are delayed as the seawall is rebuilt on SH1 at Pukerua Bay.
Please be assured that our freight partners are monitoring the situation closely and doing all they can to ensure services continue over this period.
Don’t hesitate to get in touch with our team if you would like to discuss this further.
