SH35 closed between Ruatoria and Tolaga Bay


Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency is advising that State Highway 35 between Ruatoria and Tolaga Bay is closed due to flooding.

A detour is in place on State Highway 2 via Waioeka Gorge.

Rainfall is heavy throughout the region and has caused several slips along the road network. There are high levels of water in places across the network which limits visibility of the road surface and any debris that may be on the road.

Motorists are advised to plan ahead, take extra care and drive to wet weather conditions – keep a safe following distance and lower your speed.
