People who drive on SH1 south of Kaikōura will face delays overnight Sunday into Monday morning (12 and 13 November).

The highway is being re-surfaced around Pinnacle Rock at Peketa between the Kahutara River Bridge southern side to Parititahi Tunnel Number 1.

  • Drivers will be paused for up to 30 minutes from 9 pm through to 11.45 pm Sunday.
  • The highway will then be closed in both directions between 11.45 pm and 3.30 am Monday morning – up to four hours closure.

Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency asks overnight users of SH1 south of Kaikōura to plan around this closure, which is for essential highway re-surfacing ahead of the summer holiday traffic.

Emergency services will be managed around the work.
