    Slips and landslides in the Tairawhiti region are causing headaches for contractors

    Slips and landslides in the Tairawhiti region are causing headaches for contractors


    It comes as the region was slammed by severe weather earlier this week.

    State Highway two from Gisborne to Wairoa is still closed from slips and fallen trees, and a small section of State Highway 35 is also closed at Tokomaru Bay.

    There is now no route south, other than a significant detour travelling north on State Highway two to Opotiki and then on to Taupo.

    More than 40 local roads are closed also due to slips and flooding.
