The Motu Road is currently listed as closed on the Gisborne District council website due to “the ford crossing on the Opotiki side is damaged and not passable”, presumably due to the water flow shown in the video above.

SH2 through the Waioweka Gorge is also closed due to a big slip.

Local road closures in the area including the latest Motu Road updates can be found on the Gisborne District council website at: http://www.gdc.govt.nz/road-information/.
