South Westland State Highway 6 closed north of Haast


9 November 2016 | SOUTHERN REGION

South Westland State Highway 6 closed north of Haast, culvert damage, aiming to reopen by midday

The NZ Transport Agency closed State Highway 6 near Lake Moeraki, between Haast and Fox Glacier, South Westland, at 8.30 am today due to a slip and damage to the nearby Douglas Culvert.

“Transport Agency crews are working hard to get the highway reopened by midday and we will update if that time has to be extended,” says Pete Connors, Regional Performance Manager for the Transport Agency.

Around 37mm of rain fell in one hour and about 50mm in two hours in South Westland early today as a weather bomb moves up the West Coast.
