Waiau Earthquake – 7.8 magnatude

North Canterbury was rocked by a 7.8 magnatude earthquake centered in Waiau, 60kms north of our home base in Waipara.

The damage to roading and rail infrastructure saw State Highway 1 closed for 13 months, and had all vehicles detoured inland via State Highway 7, adding significant delays to all freight movements along the route.


While our day-to-day operation was not hugely impacted, many of our clients and freight partners were.
