Dyes Pass Road, Summit Road Closures
Christchurch City Council has shut Dyers Pass Road from the Sign of the Takahe up and the Summit Road due to this morning's snowfall. Because there is no way to get over the hills above Cashmere, there are cautionary Road Closed signs at the bottom of Hackthorne and Dyers Pass roads. It is likely that because the bottom ends of these two roads are very slippery, they too will be fully closed in the next half hour. The Council advises all drivers on hill roads to avoid travelling if possible and all other drivers to take care and reduce their speed.
CCC contractor Onxy advises its refuse and recycling collection trucks will not be working on the hills and we will advise shortly on other collection areas.
