NZ Post of New Zealand has confirmed that the local states of emergency in response to Cyclone Gabrielle have been lifted in Hawke’s Bay and Tairāwhiti/Gisborne regions. 

Both regions are now in a ‘response and transition to recovery phase’. Road infrastructure is still affected in these regions therefore delivery delays are still to be expected.

New Zealand Post has confirmed that a national state of emergency was declared on 14th February 2023 in response to Cyclone Gabrielle.

Owing to the severity of this weather event and the scale of the emergency, the central government has taken over from the local authorities and is now managing the response in accordance with the Civil Defence Act.

In order to ensure the safety and wellbeing of its customers and staff, New Zealand Post has decided to implement the following measures:

  • Suspension of all deliveries in red alert areas;
  • Suspension of air network operations;
  • Suspension of all line haul services to the Far North, Gisborne and Coromandel areas.

New Zealand Post is currently conducting an assessment and the situation is being monitored closely.
