Waka Kotahi is advising that SH60 is closed due to a slip which has come down within the Takaka Hill worksite following heavy rain earlier today.
The slip on Tākaka Hill has been cleared and the road is now OPEN.
Contractors are on-site working to clear the slip and re-open the road as soon as possible.
Waka Kotahi is aiming to re-open the road later this evening. The status of the road will be updated regularly at journeys.nzta.govt.nz/traffic(external link)
Drivers are advised to delay travel until the road re-opens as there is no detour in place.
Plan ahead for a safe, enjoyable journey. Keep up to date with:
