Latest Situation of Highlands Highway

Last Saturday, huge Landslide happened near Kundiawa, cutting off Road link in the middle of Highlands Highway. We have regular flow of tourists from/to Mt Hagen/Goroka including Mt Wilhelm trekking, so we have visited the site this week to see the situation.
The road was cut off approx 500m and no cars can go through the section.
Travelling public have to walk the distance - approx 5minutes, carrying their cargo to catch bus on the other side of the road. So Life is bit harder, but people are still surviving.
Now people are waiting for the Fuel supply to Mt Hagen and rest of the Highlands Province, and opening up of alternative road before the section is restored.
For the time being, please be assured that Overland Tour of Highlands Highway is operating without much trouble, we get vehicle from both sides - Hagen & Goroka to connect the tourists across. All you need to do is to walk about 500m !!
