Upper Junction Rd, above Sawyers Bay, has been reopened after
being closed for nearly a year by a large slip.
The slip occurred about 100m from the intersection of Upper
Junction Rd and Blanket Bay Rd, taking about 30m of road and
leaving a 20m drop.
Dunedin City Council roading maintenance engineer Peter
Standring said it was one of the largest slips the council
had dealt with, and had cost more than $400,000 to repair.
The road was open to vehicles again, but some minor finishing
touches, such as a guard railing, were still to be completed,
