Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency advises State Highway 2 is down to one lane in the Waimana Gorge between Fraser Road and Stanley Road due to a slip.
Contractors are on site clearing the slip material, and there is a 30km/h temporary speed limit and Stop/Go traffic management in place.
Motorists are encouraged to avoid the area and delay unnecessary travel. Light vehicles should consider the alternative route via via Whakatane, Ōhope and Wainui.
Clean up of the site is expected to take approximately three hours. Visit journeys.nzta.govt.nz(external link) for up to date information on road works, traffic, detours and delays.
Waka Kotahi thanks motorists for their patience.
