Road to Kawakawa Bay due to re-open

1:42 pm on 24 September 2008

Residents of Kawakawa Bay will have access to the main road again this Friday. The route has been cut for more than a month.

The Kawakawa-Clevedon road, in eastern Manukau is closed by a major landslip, forcing residents to make a 100km detour.

Manukau City Council says the road will initially only be a single lane and will be controlled by traffic lights.

Permanent improvements will be carried out over summer.
