UPDATED: Malahat reopens after two-hour closure

The Malahat Drive has fully reopened after a two-hour closure.

It was closed in both directions around 11 a.m. this morning after a vehicle struck a rock wall five kilometres north of Langford, but was partially re-opened shortly after noon.

The crash happened at Finlayson Arms Road, which meant the detour sometimes used via Finlayson Arms during Malahat crashes was not available.
