Report flooding and service issues to WDC on 0800 932 4357. WDC’s Roading Contractor is working to reinstate the local road network 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. 


Update as at 10 May 2017


The two recent severe weather events of 4 to 6 April and 12 to 14 April 2017 caused extensive damage to the Local Roading Network.


Road repairs are ongoing. All local roads are open for traffic, but there are currently seven sites where the road is restricted to single lane.  A portion of the work completed to date is considered to be temporary repairs that will require subsequent permanent repairs to reinstate them to the original standard. Permanent repairs are estimated to begin in one months time. Completion dates are dependent on the requirements at each site. Our best estimate at this stage is all permanent repairs will be completed by December 2017.
