The NZ Transport Agency says State Highway 25 at Whanagapoua Hill between Whitianga and the Coromandel is now fully open to two lanes after a slip on Saturday blocked the highway. The road was opened to a single lane Saturday afternoon and workers have been busy clearing the remaining material so the highway can be fully opened today.
The Transport Agency wants to thank motorists for their patience and apologises for the inconvenience caused.
