7 months and one winter until SH1 reopens

These comments about the work on SH1 are pretty accurate. They come after Winston Peters flew into Kaikoura with Denis O'Rourke to claim there was next to no work being done and repairs were way too slow.

The highway re-opening project in actuality is a massive job and the works are huge. If you look at how difficult it has been to keep the Manawatu Gorge open (currently it's closed because of some more serious slips and the re-opening keeps getting pushed back) then it's easy to understand why the SH1 reconstruction on the Kaikoura Coast is so major.
