Remutaka Hill SH2 now open (update)

NZTA advise that SH2 Remutaka Hill is now open.

It was closed earlier today  due to hau pūkeri (strong winds).

Severe gale northwesterlies continue to batter Wellington and the southern Wairarapa, so please take extra care when driving, especially in high-sided vehicles or on motorcycles.
