Wellington’s Ngaio Gorge Road has been closed again after a
new slip came down
only days after reopening.
This morning’s slip happened close to the major slip that was recently cleared.
The road is closed in both directions.
The first big slip came down on the road linking central Wellington to the suburbs of Ngaio and Khandallah in late July and the road was closed which put pressure on alternative roads into the city.
There have been more than 460 slips across the Wellington region this winter, amid repeated bouts of heavy rain.
