The swells overnight were not as high as previously predicted, so all sailings are going ahead and currently running to schedule. However there are many road closures affecting passengers ability to get to their sailings on time.
- State Highway 1 (North Island) north of Pukerua Bay is currently down to one lane due to damage caused by the storm. This is causing significant delays for traffic. If clients are travelling to a sailing from Wellington to Picton today they will need to allow extra travel time.
- State Highway 1 (South Island) north and south of Kaikoura is currently closed. If passengers are travelling from Christchurch or Kaikoura they will need to take an alternative route. The road will be closed at least overnight.
