The long awaited state-of-the-art weather station at the top of the Crown Range is now in operation with the first photos from the webcam tweeted by Metservice yesterday afternoon (Wednesday September 6).

The project offers road contractors and drivers a live feed of road conditions on one of New Zealand’s highest sealed alpine roads.

The high-definition panoramic web camera offers views at the Crown Range summit, with images being refreshed in real time every four minutes.

QLDC policy, standards and asset planner Polly Lambert said the new services will help drivers to make better travel decisions.

“This information will be added to QLDC’s daily morning winter road report, as well as our social media channels and website, offering much greater visibility of the conditions up there,” Polly said.
