SH1 North and South to open 24/7
18 Apr 2018
UPDATE 18 April: NZTA confirm State Highway 1 north and south of Kaikōura to reopen for night time travel from Monday 30 April.
Things to keep in mind: There are multiple sections where traffic will be singe-lane and controlled by Stop/Go controls as opposed to people. New signage to indicate 'no stopping' and 'rockfall' zones will be present to protect motorist safety and alert them to potential danger. Trains will still be present travelling both directions-drivers should take care when approaching and crossing tracks, checking both ways before proceeding. Cyclists are advised to only use the road during the day for their own safety. A no stopping zone will remain in place in the two most earthquake-damaged areas just north and south of Kaikōura.Read More
