  • The Motueka West Bank Road – care is advised with minor slips having occurred and been cleared, but the road is down to one lane in places.
  • Surface flooding has closed the Waimea West Road between Eves Valley Road and Challies Road.
  • Contractors are currently on site monitoring these areas.
