SH2 Remutaka Hill remains closed due to serious crash


Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency is advising that State Highway 2 Remutaka Hill remains closed due to a serious crash and motorists should delay their journey.

The Serious Crash Unit is still on site carrying out their investigation. Crews will then need to clear the road so that it can open to traffic. It is unlikely the road will be open before 5pm this evening.

Motorists should delay their travel, as the only alternative route between Wellington and the Wairarapa is via State Highway 1, State Highway 57, then State Highway 2 which would add around three hours to the journey.

Waka Kotahi will continue to provide updates via the Journey Planner webpage and social media channels.
