For the first time since the earth­quake, crews work­ing to re-open the high­way have ac­cess all along the coastal route. The last time any­one drove around Ohau Point was nearly a year ago, be­fore the earth­quake brought down thou­sands of tonnes of rock on to the high­way.

Trans­port Min­is­ter Si­mon Bridges said the achieve­ment would help speed up the work to get SH1 open to the pub­lic by Christ­mas.
