Fallen trees on Paekakariki Hill Road

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 6/01/2017

Part of Paekakariki Hill Road is closed after strong winds brought down three trees and power lines.

The road is closed between Grays Road and State Highway 1, though residents are allowed access to their homes.

Repairs to the power lines are under way and the road is being cleared, police say.

Motorists are advised to take State Highway 1 instead.

NZTA is also advising motorists to take care on SH2, the Rimutaka Hill, due to high winds.

Take extra care if you are on a motorbike or high-sided vehicle, NZTA says.
