Roading Update

Two roads have suffered significant damage as a result of the extremely wet weather over the weekend.

Taharoa Road – One historical slump has triggered again, plus additional areas, for a road length of 100m. There are significant cracks visible in the sealed surface. Warning signs have been placed on site. The treatment is to rip the sealed surface and leave this 100m length unsealed while we monitoring the slip for futher movement for the next three months. Repairs to continue in the spring.

Totoro Road – A large tomo appeared overnight last night and the road is impassable. “Road Closed” signs have been erected. Fortunately no properties have been cut off as the road connects at both ends. This is a recurring tomo and was just filled with very large rocks last week. Site inspections are underway - a digger is presently on site. The contractor is aiming to open single lane access later today. This area had 63mm of rain last night.

Report service issues to WDC on 0800 932 4357. WDC’s Roading Contractor is working to reinstate the affected roads as soon as practicable. Drivers may encounter road works at affected sites. People are urged to pay attention to the road signs when moving through a road works site.
