SH2 still closed after slip

8:56 pm on 2 March 2012

State Highway 2 between Gisborne and Opotiki will remain closed for a second night after a major slip on Thursday.

The New Zealand Transport Agency says over 10,000 cubic metres of rock and soil fell on the road and contractors have been working to cut a path through the debris.

The agency hopes the road will be reopened around midday Saturday.
