People asked to avoid State Highway 3, near Mt Messenger


The NZ Transport Agency is asking people to avoid State Highway 3, near Mt Messenger Tunnel in Taranaki.

The road is closed following a large slip.

NZTA Transport System Manager, Ross I’Anson, says the slip is covering both lanes and the road could be closed for at least three hours.

He says State Highway 4 or State Highway 1 can be used but they will add a significant amount of time to a journey.
