This updates the information below:

17 July traffic bulletin

The full closure will be between 8am and 3pm. The road will be re-opened under the existing stop/go traffic management outside of these hours.

The culvert will direct water away from the slip site. The slip site repairs will begin as soon as the culvert work is complete. No closure is required for the slip repair once the culvert has been installed.

Emergency Services will be given access through the worksite at all times.

Unfortunately there is no detour route available for heavy vehicles. Road users should expect significant delays.
