Clutha District Council Weather and Roading Report
Please see our Road Notices page for the latest information about weather and roads in the Clutha District.
As a general warning, motorists are advised to drive to the conditions (this
includes watching your speed and following distances) and to check conditions
before leaving home.
If snow does fall, then any affected roads will be cleared
in accordance with Council’s policy, meaning roads will start to be cleared
when no further snow is expected within 24 hours and so that as many
residences are given access as soon as possible. It can take some time
for us to advise of all road closures, so please be patient while we respond to
any snow clearance and/or gritting for ice.
Council’s Emergency Management Officer is monitoring the
situation and we will update as necessary.
