Rimutaka Hill Road slip caution

Police are advising caution to motorists taking the Rimutaka Hill Road route between Wellington and the Wairarapa tonight due to slips.

Contractors have been called out this evening to deal with a slip that is blocking the southbound about 1 kilometre from the Rimutaka Hill Road summit, on the Wairarapa side.


The slip is blocking a part of State Highway 2 over the Rimutaka Hill, a central district police spokesman said.

Police urged drivers to widen following distances in tonight's poor weather conditions.
