SH25 remains closed due to large slip
Following a large slip, SH25 is now closed between Hikuai and McBeth Rd and will remain closed today.
NZTA advise motorists to please delay your journey or allow extra time for alternative routes.
An alternative route is to use SH2 via Karangahake Gorge.
The region took a battering on Thursday, with floods cutting off the settlement of Hikuai near Pauanui and forcing stranded travellers to escape in a Surf Life Saving rescue boat.
On Friday eight roads were still closed - three on the state highway network, and five local roads.
SH25 is expected to remain closed util Sunday.
