The slip in Ngaio Gorge has been cleared and Ngaio Gorge Rd may open on Monday afternoon.

Wellington City Council said the opening of the road depended on weather conditions and it would release a further update.

The slip came down on the road linking central Wellington to the suburbs of Ngaio and Khandallah in late July and the road has been closed since, putting pressure on alternative roads into the city.

There have been more than 460 slips across the Wellington region this winter, amid repeated waves of heavy rain.
