(Photo : Establishing the track to truck material from the Waterfall Road slip site.)
Work has been going well on the slip on Waterfall Road at Mackays Crossing and Council is now hoping the road could be re-opened as early as May.
The first part of the work involves removing fallen material from the site. Last week large pine trees were removed and contractors established a track from the road to the top of the hill. Around 9000m2 or 1200 truckloads of debris will be carted off the site.
The work is being joint-funded by the New Zealand Transport Agency and the Council.
