Manawatu Gorge closed on Monday

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 9/07/2016

The Manawatu Gorge will be closed on Monday so a truck can be hauled out of the river.

The road was closed on Friday when the male driver and a female passenger were rescued.

During the weekend one lane is open around the crash site.

NZTA says the crash happened in challenging terrain and the crane needed to haul the truck out is so large the road will need to close while it operates.

The road will be closed from 9am on Monday.

The two alternative routes are Saddle Road or the Pahiatua Track.
