The Milford Road was partially opened on Thursday 18 October with one lane operating allowing access in and out of Milford Sound. There is still a significant slip on Milford Road with just one lane access for traffic in and out of Milford Sound. Works will continue over the next few weeks to fully repair the road. This will mean that there will be resulting delays to traffic in and out of Milford Sound of approximately 30 minutes in each direction.
As is always the case with the Milford Road the situation may change on a daily basis due to weather conditions.
