Bunker Totally under Repair Is Ground under Repair and Part of Through the GreenRoG, Definitions, Ground under Repair and Through the Green, Rule 25-1b(i) and 25-1c (i); Decision 25/13. Temporary Local Rule. Revised 2014-11-30.
IN DEPTH: From Decision 25/13: "If a bunker is being renovated and the Committee defines the entire bunker as ground under repair, the bunker loses its status as a hazard and is automatically classified as through the green. Therefore, unless the Committee specifically states otherwise, Rule 25-1-b(i) applies, not Rule 25-1b(ii)." 
The Committee may define a whole bunker, for exemple when it is built, renovated or re-turfed, as ground under repair and that it is part of through the green. Such a bunker may be identified by a blue stake placed inside the bunker. A player whose ball lies in or touches the bunker or who has interference from such a bunker may either play the ball as it lies or take relief, without penalty under Rule 25-1b(i). If it is known or virtually certain that a ball that has not been found is in the bunker the player may take relief without penalty under Rule 25-1c (i).
The Committee may decide that play from the area is prohibited and then the player must take relief, without penalty, under Rule 25-1b(i)-click to link

Note that the bunker ought to have a sign that states that it is ground under repair and part of through the green.
