Kaikōura and surrounding regions has certainly seen its fair share of temporary road works over recent years, following the devastating infrastructure damage caused by the 7.8 magnitude earthquake in 2016.
Thanks to the amazing work (currently near completion) undertaken by the North Canterbury Transport Infrastructure Recovery alliance (NCTIR), it hopefully won’t be too long before State Highway between Picton and Christchurch is operating once again at full capacity. The alternate route, via a series of minor roads that traverse the Wairau Valley and Murchison, has held up well thanks to many upgrade works over the past few years.
It is estimated that traffic on the inland alternative route to Picton is over four times higher than before the earthquake struck, and it is no small wonder that lots of temporary traffic management has been deployed in efforts to sustain the viability of this necessary reroute.
All things considered, the rise in job opportunities in the construction and roadwork industry is one of the few boons to the economy that the Kaikōura community have seen in recent times.
