State Highway 6 from Haast to Makarora to re-open at 10am


State Highway 6 from Haast to Makarora will re-open to all traffic at 10am today (Sunday).

The road has been closed since 12.30pm on Friday after heavy rain began falling in the area, mobilising the slip at Diana Falls and bringing more rock and gravel down on to highway.

The NZ Transport Agency's Performance Manager Pete Connors says the heavy rain in the area has stopped and our contractors have been back on site since first light this morning clearing the road and checking the slip ready for a 10am opening.

Access through the area is single-lane and the highway will continue to be closed each night at 6pm and re-open at 8am as a safety precaution.
