Queen’s Birthday Weekend road warning: Heavy traffic and changeable weather conditions

One of the busiest weekends on New Zealand roads is coming up. With thousands of Kiwis heading out on long road journeys, Police, the NZ Transport Agency (NZTA), and ACC are urging drivers to take care and be prepared for heavy traffic, delays, and changeable weather conditions.

“The roads will be busy, particularly on Friday evening,” says Police’s National Manager of Road Policing Superintendent Steve Greally.

“If you’re driving, stay alert, be patient, and don’t rush – the lives of you and your passengers are worth more than arriving a few minutes earlier.”
