From Midday Report, 12:45 pm on 5 December 2023

Business in the small alpine village of Arthurs Pass is expected to take a big hit over the next two weeks with the daily closure of State Highway 73.

The highway linking Canterbury and the West Coast will be shut every weekday from 10 in the morning until six at night for resurfacing work between Arthur's Pass Village and Otira until December 15th.

Tuesday is the first day of the planned closure.
