While the bomb scares keep police busy and prevent them from carrying out their usual shoot-to-kill and chase-to-kill operations, they are also affecting businesses and the ordinary people.

Dunedin’s second bomb scare in 24 hours closed State Highway 1 to traffic leaving south of the city for a number of hours.

“The road was closed around 10am after police found what was described an improvised explosive device under an overbridge on the Green Island motorway near Dunedin, Police Sergeant Chris George said.” A report said.

“The lane south was currently blocked and traffic going south was forced to go through the main street of Green Island, a police spokesperson said.”

“Bomb experts were expected to arrive this afternoon but it was still uncertain when the lane would reopen, police said. The lane was not expected to reopen before 3pm.”

Mr George was quoted as saying that  there were “bound to be” traffic delays, given that the road was  main highway south of Dunedin.

The incident was “major hassle”, he said.

Dunedin’s motorway was reopened just before 3.00p.m.

“The highway was closed mid-morning and the bomb squad called, after the discovery of what appeared to be an improvised explosive device,” according to another  report.

The second  scare comes less than 24 hours after Dunedin airport was closed due to an earlier bomb scare, which proved to be a hoax.
