Rimutaka Hill Road open following diesel spill


The NZ Transport Agency is advising motorists that the Rimutaka Hill Road, State Highway 2, re-opened in both directions just before 1pm today. This follows a diesel spill earlier this morning.

Contractors have cleared the spill, but motorists are advised to exercise caution as the road may still be slippery, and with more wet weather forecast, motorists should continue to take extra care. We appreciated motorists’ patience during the road closure.

Motorists are advised to delay travel and check for updates on the road conditions via
