Travelling along the Inland Road to Kaikoura

From Checkpoint, 5:50 pm on 24 November 2016

It could be weeks before the inland road to Kaikōura is reopened, Civil Defence told the town's residents this afternoon.

A New Zealand Defence Force convoy carrying vital supplies to the town took about six and a half hours to travel along the road from Culverden.

RNZ reporter Maja Burry joined the convoy and was barely able to stay on her seat at times as the truck dodged landslides and carefully navigated around huge cracks in the road.
