Situation:  A 7.5 magnitude earthquake has stuck the South Island causing massive damage to infrastructure.  State Highway 1 has been closed due to massive landslips, isolating tourism dependent townships such as Kaikoura.  Damage/reconstruction costs are estimated in the billions threatening NZ’s financial future/security.

Mission: 1 NZ Brigade will deploy to affected areas  tasked with clearing/reopening State Highway 1 – ASAP.

Enemy: Seismic activity.  Time.  Money.

Action:  The longer SH1 remains closed the worse the effects on the people of Kaikoura and the people of New Zealand will be.

1 NZ Brigade will deploy to affected areas, tasked with clearing/reopening State Highway 1 – ASAP.

In short – GET THE ROADS OPEN.

Command:  NZDF, Civil Defence, various other agencies.  Due to lack of 1st hand experience in earthworks on such a large scale, top civilian personnel  with the relevant experience will be found to oversee/advise this operation.

Signals:  TBC/TCB
