Default ooty to coimbatore road closed or open to traffic?

heard that road from ooty to mettupalayam via coonor was closed due to land slide recently. also heard that traffic is now going thro kotagiri instead of usual ghat road.this has lead to huge delay in traffic movement.
can any of you give the correct scene as of now?
