Ngauranga Gorge reopens

2:03 pm on 13 July 2017

State Highway 1 at Ngauranga Gorge has reopened after strong winds loosened an overhanging sign north of Wellington, forcing its closure.

The northbound and southbound lanes were both closed briefly between Johnsonville and the Ngauranga/Hutt Road interchange, police said.

However, the highway is now open in both directions.

The sign is near the slip that closed two of the three northbound lanes and all of the southern lanes earlier this week.
