SH1 in Dome Valley about to reopen

11:59 am on 30 July 2008

State Highway One near Warkworth should be open to traffic again early on Wednesday afternoon.

The road is closed due to a large slip, in the Dome Valley near Sheepworld.

Transit says there were three separate slips on the road.

Northern operations manager Joseph Flanagan says State Highway 16, an alternative route north, is open, but is down to a single lane in places.
