The month of June saw reductions in costs associated with maintaining the capacity to use secondary roads in the area impacted by the Kaikoura earthquakes.

As promised, these savings are being handed onto our customers and the Earthquake Recovery Surcharge is being reduced.

Moving forward, we will continue to hand on any changes in costs to our customers (based on costs from the month before). July sees the surcharge decrease from 9.8% to 6.0% (this is based on reduced costs in June).

We will continue to reassess monthly any changes will be made for the following month and published on our website in the table above (decreases or increases).
