Clutha District Council Weather/Roading Report

Friday 17  July 2015, 11.30am

Weather/roading report #1

The MetService has issued a Severe Weather Warning for snow and cold winds this weekend.

It says snow is likely to lower to sea level in Fiordland, Southland, Clutha and Otago during Saturday morning and afternoon.  Heavy snow is expected above 500 metres in the South Island.

While in Southland, Fiordland, Canterbury and Marlborough a period of heavy snow could see 10 to 15cm accumulate in a 6 hour period down to 300 metres.

The MetService warns it has the potential to cause major disruptions to transport, cause distress to people or stock in exposed outdoor places, and could damage trees and bring down power lines.

Motorists are advised to drive to the conditions and to check conditions before leaving home.

As usual, our contractors are only able to clear roads once conditions improve and it can take some time for us to be advised of all road closures.

Remember to check the Met Service website http://www.metservice.com/national/home for the latest weather information and the NZTA website http://www.nzta.govt.nz/traffic/ for information on State highways.

Southern Scenic Route Update

The Southland District Council has advised the Southern Scenic Route along Chaslands Highway will be re-open from lunchtime 17 July 2015.

A 75 metre section of temporary road has been constructed to reopen the road after a section collapsed due to a massive slip recently. Traffic management including speed restriction will be in place but the road will be open to all traffic.
