Planned daytime closure for State Highway 1 north of Kaikōura 

The NZ Transport Agency has scheduled a three day, daytime closure from Monday to Wednesday in order to stabilise a rock face north of Kaikōura at Ōhau Point.

Unfortunately weather conditions have meant the last part of this work, grouting the rock anchors into the cliff face, was unable to be finished in the road closure time.

Because this work cannot be completed safely with vehicles on the highway beneath the rock face, an extra day closure is required on Monday, 13 August.

Closure dates are publicised as soon as they are confirmed to give as much notice as possible to drivers and the community.
