The highway connecting Otago and the West Coast via the Haast Pass will be closed on the Otago side from tonight at 5 pm for safety reasons.

The highway connecting Otago and the West Coast via the Haast Pass will be closed on the Otago side from tonight at 5 pm for safety reasons.

A slip near Boundary Creek, between Makarora and the Neck* of Lake Wanaka, closed the highway yesterday. It was cleared just before 10 am, with slight delays for drivers today.

The slip was at the same site – Bean Bluff – as an earlier slip in 2012, although it was not as substantial as that slip, says John Jarvis, Senior Network Manager, NZ Transport Agency.
