Road reopens after slip

22:56, Jun 20 2014

Queen Charlotte Drive is open to traffic between Picton and Linkwater  following a large slip which closed the road last night.

Marlborough District Council assets and services manager Mark Wheeler said work had begun to clear the slip, near Momorangi Beach, and the road was now open to one lane.

The slip was about one kilometre from Momorangi, on the Picton side, he said.

The debris came down late yesterday, and Marlborough Roads contractors had been on duty at roadblocks either side of the slip overnight.

Road staff would be on duty while the slip was stabilised and debris cleared, Wheeler said.

There had been no damage to any properties, he said.
