I thought I heard that too - but I rewound it as I couldn't believe they'd be so stupid. They actually said it would be a few days before they knew how long it would take to clear.

Best emergency lighting! 1500 lumens and the paper towel holder.

Got plenty of torches and lamps but this was the only way to clean up the flooded dining room on Sunday night when the power was out. Lit the room brighter than the lights on the lowest setting.

Creative thinking! Did they not overheat without any airflow?

Depends on the rate at which the govt is willing to spend money. It would also depend on how much material you are willing to dump into the sea. There isn't much flat ground that you could place fill on there, so if you weren't willing to dump into the sea you would be trucking it a long was which would cost $$$$$ and slow down the rate of repairs.

I suspect it may much take longer to design and permit the road than to actually build it.

They couldn't possibly push all those slips into the sea.
they would need to enter into years of consultation with local Iwi who would no doubt say it would effect some cultural long forgotten burial site and bring up the damage it would cause to the (already dead)sea life.
but once a payment of several million had been pd they would be happy. just got the years of public consultation and legal money wrangles to get through then.

I think i f i had a business in Kaikoura i would be shifting pretty quickly to the new SH1 and buying a business in Murch.

A good deal for your emergency kits. Bonus it'll keep itself topped up & has torch with SOS flash https://www.torpedo7.co.nz/products/1DB ... power-bank
