SH1 closed due to weather conditions

State Highway 1 from Goose Bay to Peketa has been closed until Thursday due to weather conditions and falling rocks.

The New Zealand Transport Agency said motorists should use the inland route, from Waipara heading north.

Peketa is about 8km south of Kaikoura and Goose Bay about 16km south.
