A quad biker was airlifted out of the Akatarawa forest near Wellington after an accident earlier today.

A man in his 50s rolled his bike on a forestry road inside the park, which is to the north of the capital.

The Westpac Rescue Helicopter, with a Wellington Free Ambulance paramedic on board, flew to the scene and were able to land close by around midday.

The man was treated at the scene and then airlifted to Wellington Hospital for more treatment. He had moderate injuries, a Life Flight helicopter spokesperson said.

The lower drink-driving limits from December are:

Great - too much carnage on our roads.

Overkill - targets moderate drinkers, not the heavies
