Rimutaka Hill Road closure – Stop/Go in place later this afternoon

|

The NZ Transport Agency is advising that the Rimutaka Hill Road is closed in both directions because of a slip.

Contractors are now on site and estimate that about 50-60 tonnes of material has fallen from the hill, completely blocking one lane and partially blocking the other.

It’s expected that one lane will be open to traffic later this afternoon on a Stop/Go basis, with both lanes open late this afternoon or in the early evening.

Motorists are advised to delay travel or use an alternative route.

The slip occurred about one kilometre north of Kaitoke, on the Upper Hutt side of the hill.
