One lane of Oropi Road between Cheyne Road and Oropi Stream Bridge is expected to open to traffic from 5.30pm today (1 August 2019). A 24-hour stop/go system will be in place and the detour is no longer required. Please drive cautiously over this repaired section of the road.
Once we have completed some testing work tomorrow, we will be able to temporarily re-open both lanes by tomorrow evening.
There will be a partial road closure in a few weeks time to undertake the permanent repair. We will provide updates when available.
