Rimutaka Hill road open again

4:03 pm on 22 September 2010

The Rimutaka Hill road north of Wellington, State Highway 2, is open again.

It was closed early on Wednesday because of snow.

The Transport Agency advises drivers to take extra care near the summit, where there is still some snow on the road.

Cars are being allowed across only in escorted convoys in one direction at time. Long delays are expected.
