Road crews have cleared treefalls, slips, and debris that forced the closure of State Highway 6 between Nelson and Blenheim yesterday.
“This involved significant effort as not only did fallen trees have to be removed but so too did those at risk of falling onto the road,” Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency said in a statement.
“The link between Nelson and Blenheim is open to traffic. However, the continuing bad weather means the risk of slips and treefalls remains. Road users should drive to the conditions and be prepared for delays.”
Clean-up work on state highways is continuing across the region. Waka Kotahi is asking drivers to be alert to the presence of contractors and to follow temporary speed limits and traffic management at road work sites
