Motorists now have easier access to State Highway 1 from the Washdyke industrial area.

Timaru District land transport manager Andrew Dixon said the extension to Elginshire St was open.

The extension joins Treneglos St and Meadows Rd. It is the final part of roading changes in the area, which included installing traffic lights at the SH1 intersections with Seadown Rd and the Pleasant Point highway.

The new road will provide an alternative route to SH1, particularly for heavy vehicles.
