Landslip Still Blocking Ōtaki Gorge Road To Trampers,Tourists And Locals

The Ōtaki Gorge Road remains closed at Blue Bluff, 12km from State Highway 1. The road is showing signs of movement, and is at risk of slipping.

 The Kāpiti Coast Council says this means access to the Ōtaki Forks area and the Tararua Forest Park is closed to both vehicles and walkers.

The Council says: “With the weather improving, we know this is a shame but safety has to come first.

“The Department of Conservation is working to find alternative public access to the huts and walks in the park.”

We will be updating our website and other channels when we have more information to share.
