Police: ‘Drivers should consider delaying’ departures north from Wgtn
Police said late this afternoon that SH1 north of Wellington is ‘very slow going at the moment, as everyone seems to be leaving town at once.’
According to police traffic units, the traffic is slow going from Plimmerton all the way up to Otaki.
Drivers are asked to consider delaying their travel a few hours if they can, to avoid sitting in stalled or slow traffic for long periods.
There are no reported crashes along this route, at the present time, however there are pockets of road works, low or gazetted speed areas, all of which can slow traffic down.
Police say: ‘Drive safely and mind your following distances.’
