Slip in Ngauranga Gorge causes traffic delays in western and northern suburbs

News from WCC at 2.30pm
There are extensive traffic delays in Ngaio, Khandallah, Johnsonville and Tawa as traffic is diverted away from the Ngauranga Gorge following a landslide early this afternoon.

Motorists are advised to expect slow journeys especially during rush hour – and delay their journeys home or avoid travel if possible.

The Council aims to get contractors to do ‘point duty’ at several roundabouts along the ‘back route’ between Ngaio Gorge and Middleton Road between Johnsonville and Tawa.

Traffic was reportedly bumper-to-bumper on Middleton Road in the Churton Park area as at 2pm.
