Desert Road to close briefly tomorrow for repairs

1:42 pm on 18 July 2017

The Desert Road in the central North Island will close for two periods totalling about three hours tomorrow morning while urgent repair work is carried out.

The State Highway will shut from 7.30am until about 9am as engineers survey the damage caused by a crash last Tuesday.

And it'll close again between 10.30am and 12pm while a temporary barrier is installed near the Waihohonu Bridge.
