Ngapuna Road now open

20 December 2012
Ngapuna Road is no longer closed due to the reduced risk of flash flooding.

The lake created by debris that had built up on Mt Tongariro following the eruption in August burst in October, resulting in a flash flood/mudflow. As a result of this release the risk of future flooding within Rotoaira Forest is minimal and as a result Ngapuna Road is no longer closed. 

We thank you for your cooperation while Ngapuna Road was closed.
