A massive slip is being investigated after splitting one side of a road in half in Whitford.

The Franklin Local Board has reported an underslip, which is material under the road slipping out, has happened on Broomfields Road and is being investigated by Auckland Transport (AT).

Once investigations are complete, and a report has been given, AT’s teams will have the information they need before any remediation work is carried out, the board says.

Broomfields Road is closed at the slip site due to safety concerns as there’s a risk it will progress further across the road into the other lane.

The detour is via Wades Road.
