Slip closes Awakino Gorge

A large slip has closed the road through the Awakino Gorge in Waikato.

The New Zealand Transport Agency says both lanes of State Highway 3 are blocked south of Awakau Rd.

It says contractors are on their way to the site and it may take several hours to re-open the road.

There is no detour currently available.
