Kaikoura Slip 24 Hrs To Go


Workers have been using diggers to remove material from near the top of the huge slip south of Kaikoura  face since early yesterday, and have now worked their way well down the face.

Caution is being exercised removing debris from the bottom of the slip, to ensure it continues to provide a safe working platform for diggers and other machinery on top.

Crews will again work through the night as part of the push to get the road open by 4pm tomorrow.

Crews have worked 24 hours a day since the slip was stabilised on Monday night, and have made good progress in removing the estimated 30,000 cubic metres of debris.

It’s hope rail lines will be clear for Friday.
