EMERGENCY ROAD WORKS
Updated Wednesday 1 July - 4.15pm
Contractors and all available subcontractors have been working to maintain accessibility over both State Highways and local roads. Civil Defence Recovery Managers are working towards full restoration. This will take several months to fully complete.
All roads in the Ruapehu District are now open (except for Pipiriki Raetihi Road). However, some are restricted to one lane in many parts. Care is required.
State Highway 4 (between Raetihi and Wanganui)
Closed. Clearing under way for emergency access in the first instance.
Motorists are advised to take extra care - reduce speed and drive to the conditions.
