The He Ara Kotahi pathway to Linton will be closed today and Friday.

Palmerston North City Council said rain caused some big slips that it needs to clean up and the path is closed for safety reasons.

People will still be able to travel to and from Massey University and Food HQ.

A spokesperson for the council said slips were expected in the first couple of years, especially in winter.

"We'll be working hard to get it back in use asap. Thanks for your patience."
