For anyone planning to travel up / down Papaiti Road please be aware that a slip has occurred. We have a crew working to clear the road which is expected to be open to light traffic only from 11 am this morning. It is likely to take 2-3 days to fully clear the slip. We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause.
