Please attribute to Inspector Angela Hallett, Road Policing Manager, Eastern District:

Motorists are asked to take extra care as State Highway 2 between Gisborne and Napier re-opens tomorrow, following the devastation of Cyclone Gabrielle.

Police are urging motorists to drive to the conditions as much of the road is still impacted.

Speed restrictions are in place and some areas are down to single lanes with traffic lights and signage.

There may also be queues and longer expected travel times, so please have patience while you travel.

Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency will be managing temporary closures of the road at night, while work to restore the road continues.

Motorists are encouraged to visit the Waka Kotahi Journey Planner website – – before they travel for real-time travel information, and updates on delays, roadworks and road closures.

Police will have a visible presence on the road, so you can expect to see us anywhere at any time.
