Akatarawa Road is now closed to through traffic due to a slip. The slip is approximately 2 km past Staglands Wildlife Reserve. Staglands remains open and can be accessed from Upper Hutt. Contractors are being sent to the site to clear and reopen the road. We’ll provide further updates as and when possible.

Please exercise extreme caution when driving through the area.
