Not the first slip in the gorge.  This pic was apparently taken on 11 Feb 1960.  No idea of the original source sorry.

 

 

 


Are you sure that wasn't taken yesterday?!

Only one less in each direction.... And did you spot the guy abseiling down the cliff. I had to zoom in to check it wasn't a rock smile

I think the school holidays must help. I come in from the complete opposite direction and had one of the quickest commutes ever.

....and, Ngauranga Gorge totally closed again, both ways.  Owing to chance of flying debris.

The debris was from a sign that got damaged by the wind. Northbound lanes are now open again. Southbound still closed.

Open both ways again now.  That was pretty quick.

 

 

 

I tip my hat to all the maintenance crews out there braving the cold working to keep the country's infrastructure running as best they can.
