SH2 reopened

4:11 pm on 5 April 2012

The Transport Authority has reopened State Highway 2 between Napier and Wairoa after it was closed by repeated slips Thursday morning.

The NZTA says the road is one lane only and will be manned around the clock by road crews with stop and go signs.

It says delays are likely and the route could easily be blocked again by further slips.

Motorists are being advised to use extreme caution due to the poor condition of the road surface.
