Earthquake and aftershocks bring increased risk of rock-fall

|

The NZ Transport Agency is asking motorists in eastern Bay of Plenty to be aware of the risk of rock-falls and slips after the earthquake and aftershocks this morning.

Contractors have been out monitoring and surveying the highway network.

No damage or rock-falls have been reported.

But the aftershocks are bringing an increased risk of rock-fall and slips at the following parts of the state highway network:

  • SH2 Waioeka Gorge
  • SH2 Waimana Gorge
  • SH35 Maraenui
  • SH35 Motu Bluffs
  • SH35 Hawai to Te Kaha

The Transport Agency advises motorists to plan their journey, check weather and road conditions and choose the safest route possible if you have the option.
