Crash at Te Horo blocks SH1 traffic in both directions

A three-vehicle crash on State Highway 1 at 1.40 this afternoon blocked the main road in both directions between Peka Peka and Te Horo.

At 2pm, NZTA reported significant delays, with the only detour via Te Horo Beach.

An hour after the crash, the road was cleared but traffic was queued back to Te Horo Beach Road and along the Kapiti Expressway.

It wasn’t till 3.20 that congestion started to ease.
