Delays north and south of Christchurch this morning
Drivers are advised to expect significant delays getting through Templeton west of Christchurch thismorning as the highway was earlier closed due to a crash. Given the busy time of the morning, traffic is backed up.
North of Christchurch, near the Conway River bridge which is south of Kaikoura, a crash is blocking the southbound lane, so drivers should anticipate delays there also.
The NZ Transport Agency advises anyone who can postpone travel through these points to do so until later in the morning.
