MOLESWORTH CLOSED DUE TO FIRE RISK .
FENZ (Fire and Emergency NZ) have advised us that the fire risk is becoming extreme through the Awatere and Molesworth. This will mean that the Acheron Road through Molesworth will be closed from Monday 11 February until further notice. Gates at the Clarence Bridge and Cob Cottage ends of the road through Molesworth will be locked at 7pm Sunday 10 February 2019.
We will continue to monitor the situation and work with FENZ to determine when the road can be reopened. Given the long-term forecast for Marlborough through to autumn, it’s unlikely that the road will be reopened soon.
