Slip near Taihape reduces highway to one lane

5:24 pm on 23 September 2010

A slip blocking State Highway 1 south of Taihape has reduced the road to one lane for the rest of Thursday.

The north-bound lane will remain closed, while contractors clear the slip.

Police say a truck crashed there about 9.30am on Thursday, causing dirt and debris to give way.
