Wind gusts spin car on Remutaka Hill Rd

A woman whose car was spun around by the wind twice on the Remutaka Hill Rd said the State Highway 2 route was too dangerous and should have been closed on Tuesday.

A woman whose car was spun around by the wind twice on the Remutaka Hill Rd said the State Highway 2 route was too dangerous and should have been closed on Tuesday.
Gusts of up to 135 kmh blasted the summit of the road connecting Upper Hutt and South Wairarapa making for a hairy crossing for many motorists on Tuesday.
Waka Kotahi issued a warning on Tuesday afternoon via Twitter saying it might close the road at short notice due to high winds, but it remained open.
Regional transport systems manager Mark Owen said they were monitoring conditions on the hill, but the wind did not reach their threshold of consistently reaching gust speeds of over 140 kmh over at least a period of half an hour, which would trigger a closure.

These strange slots allowed you to rid yourself of an old razor and never think of it again...but it also meant, years down the track, that someone renovating would be in for a nasty, rusty surprise.
