the weekend

A motorcyclist had to be airlifted to Wellington Hospital on Saturday after sustaining moderate to severe injuries during a crash. Police were advised of the crash at 12.37pm after the motorcyclist had gone off Longbush Rd and down a bank. Police were notified of a separate crash on Saturday at about 9.35am on High St, Masterton. The collision involved two vehicles. The road was not blocked. One person received moderate injuries and another had minor injuries; both were treated on the scene.

Meet the Mayor

Acting Mayor of South Wairarapa Melissa Sadler-Futter will be available for a drop-in session between 1pm and 3pm at the Featherston Community Centre today. No bookings are necessary.

Hill works

State Highway 2 Remutaka Hill night closures continue this week and into next week with drivers being urged to book escorted crossings as soon as possible. Road crews will continue carrying out maintenance and installing new safety improvements this week until March 15 before starting up again on Sunday through to Thursday night next week [March 17 to 22]. The closures will run from 9pm to 4am. Bookings for escorted crossings next week must be done by 4pm Friday, March 15 on the NZTA online booking form. Anybody wishing to travel between Wellington and Wairarapa would need to factor this into their travel plans because the only detour available would be via Saddle Rd and the Pahiatua Track, which is likely to have significantly longer travel times.
