Dear partners and colleagues,
Before the festive season starts, we thought we would provide you with an update on Kaikoura and the surrounding areas.
We anticipate hearing news that more activity operators will become operational once the marina access is resolved. The majority of retail, hospitality and general service outlets are open for business.
* All ferry services with Interislander and Bluebridge sailings are fully operational.
Kiwi Rail – Coastal Pacific (unchanged)
* Railway is not operating
* SH1 remains closed between Blenheim – Kaikoura – Christchurch.
* New Zealand Transport Agency contractors and local crews are working hard to re-establish access to Kaikoura from the south via State Highway 1. The aim is to restore single-lane controlled access for residents and essential services before Christmas. This is dependent on weather and any further significant seismic activity.
* All roads within Kaikoura township and the surrounding areas are open.
Accommodation, activities and attractions are all OPEN in neighbouring regions of Marlborough, Nelson, Tasman, Hanmer Springs, the West Coast and Christchurch
