A large slip has blocked
Papaiti Rd north of Wanganui.
The slip came down about 7.30am yesterday on the road near
its junction with Kauarapaoa Rd, dumping about 5000 cubic
metres of soil on the road.
Council contractors had been clearing the slip yesterday but
a resident said more soil had slipped overnight.
Council was yet to say what impact this would have on access
above the slip.
