The Rimutaka Hill Rd is open this morning after workers cleared away two slips, however delays have continued to affect Wairarapa commuters.
The road was closed for much of yesterday, but re-opened about 6pm yesterday.
NZTA spokesman Anthony Frith said the road had remained open overnight.
However a broken down truck 2km from the summit on the northern side caused some delays this morning.
Meanwhile, the Waihenga Bridge near Martinborough remained closed this morning, due to high waters.
Local diversions were in place, Mr Frith said.
The bridge is closed when river levels reach 500mm from underneath the bridge span.
