The NZ Transport Agency advises that a northbound lane on the south side of State Highway 1 over the Brynderwyn Hills has been closed due to issues with the retaining wall.

The left lane has been cordoned off but vehicles can use the passing lane. While the left lane is closed, there will be one lane open in each direction. 

The lane closure follows a period of heavy rain early Tuesday morning that has undermined part of the retaining wall, says the NZTA‘s Northland system manager Jacqui Hori-Hoult. 

“It looks like we will have to replace the timber pole retaining wall which is 25 metres long.  At this stage, we anticipate the lane could be closed for up to three months while design and construction work is carried out.

“Geo tech engineers are inspecting the wall today and we are confident that there is no risk to the travelling public.”
