Works are underway to repair State Highway 1 through Mangamuka Gorge after heavy rains in July 2020 caused a number of slips. The road is currently closed between Victoria Valley Road and Makene Road, with a detour in place via State Highway 10.
The Mangamuka Gorge has been opened again.
State Highway 1 can now be travelled by all vehicles except over dimension vehicles.
We encourage everyone to drive carefully as in some places road alignment has changed and road shoulders have been reshaped.
We were able to open the road through the Gorge on schedule on Wednesday 30 June. Thank you for going on this journey with us and for your patience and understanding during a major and challenging piece of work.
