Lewis Pass delays

Canterbury

Motorists are advised the Lewis Pass is currently down to one lane following the trailer of a truck-trailer overturning earlier today.

It happened around 10:30 this morning near the Manuka Straight. The driver is reportedly uninjured.

Traffic is backed up and conditions are beginning to get icy, so motorists are asked to delay travel if possible, drive with care, and have patience while contractors work to right the trailer unit.
