Manawatu Gorge reopens for first time in nine months

From Checkpoint, 5:14 pm on 31 May 2012

After more than 280 days closed by massive landslides, the Manawatu Gorge road has been reopened, though only one lane. One-way traffic from Woodville to Ashhurst began rolling through the gorge at about four o'clock, for the first time since August.
