    Critical state highway maintenance will continue during New Zealand's COVID 19 lockdown

    Critical state highway maintenance will continue during New Zealand's COVID 19 lockdown


    Essential maintenance includes slip clearing and repairing damage after weather events.

    NZTA's Brett Gliddon says while all non-essential work has been halted, safely maintaining New Zealand's state highway system is considered vital.

    He says it carries the bulk of critical freight, as well as providing access to lifeline utilities like hospitals and ensuring that emergency services can move quickly and safely around the country.
