State Highway 35 remains CLOSED between Opotiki and Cape Runaway (Whangaparoa Bay) tonight. Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency contractors are working tirelessly to clear around 25 slips affecting this stretch of road.
Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency is advising people to plan ahead for upcoming closures on State Highway 2 between Ōpōtiki and Matawai in the Waioeka Gorge on Sunday 9 and Sunday 16 October for a culvert replacement near Matawai. The road will remain open between Gisborne and Matawai.
Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency crews will be rebuilding the highway, at the same time as logging contractors are felling trees, on the inland Rakaia Gorge Road, SH77, this week to the end of October, weekdays.
State Highway 2 Waimana Gorge is closed this morning between Station Road, Tanetua and Woodlands Road in Ōpōtiki due to multiple slips. Wainui Road in Ōpōtiki is also closed, which would be the usual detour.
