NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 10/01/2017

Motorists wanting to travel between Christchurch and Kaikoura are again having to use the inland road after a slip closed State Highway 1.

The slip came down on Tuesday night between Peketa and Goose Bay, the New Zealand Transport Agency says.

The road remained closed on Wednesday morning with officials expected to update the situation around 9am.

SH1 north and south of Kaikoura were badly damaged by the November 14 earthquake but the highway south of the town reopened just before Christmas.
