The Kaikoura earthquake * New Zealand - "Could it be the end of our truck stop?"

* Auckland - Highway rebuild hoped to bring drivers back to truck stop

--- A roadside oasis for weary drivers plans to keep trucking along, despite losing much of its customer base... The Riverlands Roadhouse, on the southern outskirts of Blenheim, was largely empty last Saturday, but owner Chris Wagner said that was no cause for concern...
... It was too early to tell if the Kaikoura earthquake and the resulting slips on the highway would spell doom and gloom for his business, he said. "Could it be the end of our truck stop? I don't think so" ... Riverlands Roadhouse had been in operation for seven years and was the last major stop for truck drivers heading north before leaving the South Island. It could hold a maximum of 40 trucks on any given day... The 19-room truck stop was largely unaffected by the earthquake except for some damage to one of the weighbridges and reopened that day... The period before the end of the year would be a transitional phase for the truck stop, Wagner said...
