Road Closure Delays 13 June 2018

Dear Valued Customer,

 

Due to adverse weather conditions, SH1 – Picton to Christchurch via Kaikoura  is currently closed. The next NZTA update on this road closure is expected at 12pm on Thursday the 14th of June.

This will cause significant delays with all Interisland freight transiting this route. We expect delays of 1 to 2 days with all Interisland deliveries dispatched yesterday and today. We also expect delays of 1 day with deliveries transiting between Christchurch and the Blenheim / Nelson region.

With the back log of freight this will create, we expect the delays to continue through to the end of this week. Please advise your customers accordingly and refrain from requesting ETAs.

We apologise for the Inconvenience this will cause.

A further update will be sent tomorrow afternoon (Thursday 14 June).

 

Kind Regards,

Big Chill Distribution Ltd

Dear Customer,

 

Due to adverse Weather conditions and road closures, our Hawkes Bay, Palmerston North, Wellington and Cromwell operations are experiencing delays of up to three hours today.

The forecast for the weather over the next 24 hours advises that we can expect further road closures in both the North Island and South Island, so we expect there could be further delays across the next day or two. We will continue to monitor all weather and road conditions and will advise of any further disruptions to our service if nessacary.
