    Work is underway to clear a large rockslide shutting off a main route between Christchurch and the West Coast

    Work is underway to clear a large rockslide shutting off a main route between Christchurch and the West Coast


    Shingle and boulders have slid on to State Highway 73 in Otira Gorge.

    A truck driver was caught out yesterday and forced to stop inside the rock shelter.

    Waka Kotahi says a helicopter will use a monsoon bucket to sluice off loose shingle.

    They say the road will remain closed today and overnight, and anyone wanting to cross needs to take the Lewis Pass.
