Night time travellers between the Whakatane area and Rotorua are urged to take an alternative route along SH2 and SH33 between the hours of 10pm – 5am Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday this week as a section of the road a will be closed.

Investigations will be carried out to determine an effective solution to stabilise the cliff face which caused a large slip last year and reduced a section of this road to one lane.
