Motakiora/Brook Park top section closed until further notice
For health and safety reasons, Waitomo District Council has closed the top section of Motakiora/ Brook Park for ALL recreational use until further notice.
As a result of the weekend’s heavy rainfall event, a section of track to the summit is hazardous and a large slip has taken out part of the mountain bike track, which is also popular with walkers.
There is risk of further multiple slips and damage if the rain continues.
The rotunda and toilet is still accessible, however we urge residents and users to exercise caution if entering this area.
Signage advising of the closure will be erected onsite soon. Please do not venture into the red zone.
Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.

Tawa Street Retaining Wall Extension

18 Dec 2014, 8:14 AM

Waitomo District Council is working to improve the quality of the local Roading Network.

We wish to advise that Inframax Construction Limited has been contracted to carry out the extension to the existing wall on Tawa Street.

This work involves creating a working bench below road level, pile driving steel beams into the ground, tying back into the slope by means of anchors, timber lagging in between steel beams and finally road reinstatement.

Work is planned to start early January and will continue for up to 4 weeks, weather permitting. Construction will generally be undertaken between the hours of 7.30am and 6pm, Monday to Saturday.

At times the public may experience some inconvenience with vehicular movements, however every effort will be made to get the work completed as quickly as possible, with minimal disruption to the public.

We would like to remind the public of the dangers associated with road works. Please make sure children remain well away from the heavy machinery and that they follow the directions of the workers.

WDC appreciates your patience and co-operation.
