For those heading further south than that, please use the detours that are in place through Tahakopa Valley.

Koi Flat Road in West Otago will remain closed at the bridge while engineers carry out further assessments.

Flooding is believed to have damaged the bridge abutments.

Motorists can use Charters Road as a bypass.


 

Road Closures, Monday 22 June 2015

Koi Flat Road in West Otago is closed at the bridge due to a dropout in the road as you approach the bridge. It will be assessed on Tuesday and more information will be available then.

Chaslands Highway is closed from Papatowai due to a slip.

Traffic is being diverted down Tahakopa Valley Road.

The road is also closed from the Niagara-Tokanui Highway and Chaslands Highway intersection.

The slip has occurred in Southland District Council's roading area.

Southland Council group manager services and assets Ian Marshall said contractors are on site now and there may be some issues for residents, but safety is paramount.

"The slip was identified last night with one lane closed then, but half the road collapsed about 3pm this afternoon and it has been necessary to close off the highway."

Council will assess the options for reopening the road once the risks are fully understood, Mr Marshall said.

Weather/roading report #1

Thursday 18 June 2015, 1pm

The MetService has advised that while the Clutha District is not likely to be as hard hit by the bad weather as predicted, it has issued a Snow Watch which covers the possibility of heavy snow in southern parts of Otago, Southland and eastern parts of Fiordland overnight Thursday and early Friday morning, where snow accumulation about 200 metres may be significant.

Motorists are advised to drive to the conditions and to check conditions before leaving home on Friday morning.

Council's Emergency Management Officer is monitoring the situation and  working with the key agencies.

If snow does fall, then any affected roads will cleared in accordance with Council's policy, meaning roads will start to be cleared when no further snow is expected  within 24 hours and so that as many residences are given access as soon as possible. 

Currently, Cannibal Bay Road remains closed from Ahuriri flat to the beach, access is only from Owaka Highway. Work to clear this road is expected to begin on Monday, weather permitting.

Mouats Saddle Road remains closed, but Puketiro Road re-opened this morning.
