Truckies are warning all motorists to beware of an unstable slip on Mt Messenger.

A meeting with authorities today will decide what action to take to ensure the essential economic link on State Highway 3 remains open, the Road Transport Association said yesterday.

The slip, marked by cones and surrounded by concrete abutments to capture the smaller debris, is being closely monitored 24 hours a day by contractors.

It is on the northern side of the summit and has been ongoing for about two weeks.

What do you think of Maori trying to restrict access to the breakwater?

It's a ridiculous move and won't help.

Good on them for standing up for themselves.

It's a non-issue since they can't fully cut off access.

Don't know, don't care
