FINAL UPDATE: 7.55PM 15 Nov 2016
NZTA have advised that SH1 between Mackays Crossing and Paramata is now open to traffic in both directions. There is a single lane operating both ways so expect delays and drive to the conditions, watching speeds and following distances.
If you are planning to travel tomorrow you may want to allow extra time for your journey as road conditions will still require motorists to take extra care.
It’s been a busy day and we’ll continue to keep an eye on things overnight but for the latest information please visit:
