on the Cook Strait have eased back so sailings will recommence this afternoon.
The ferries have brought their scheduled sailings forward 1 hour to help ease
the congestion at the ports.
There are still a number of roads closed due to snow and ice.
Current Road Closures
- SH1 Rangipo to Waiouru (Desert Road)
- SH7 Lewis Pass (Hanmer turner to Springs Junction)
- SH73 Arthurs Pass to Otira
- SH73 Springfield to Castle Hill
This weather is predicted to last for at least the next 24 hours, therefore all sailings from 1.30pm today (8th) until 8.30am tomorrow (9th) morning have been cancelled.
We will receive an update tomorrow morning as to when they will recommence sailings. We will keep you updated as we receive further information.
Please note these cancelled sailings and the backlog caused will cause a delay on some consignments.
