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.

THE costs to re-locate the Te Kuiti Community House (TKCH) services from Jennings St to the first floor of the Waitomo District Library on Taupiri St have risen from $510,000-$585,000.

Waitomo District Council recently received draft construction plans from engineering firm AECOM Ltd and the budget estimate increased by $75,000.

The price increase will cover unexpected construction costs such as ceiling panel/ grid work replacement and installing a type-4 fire alarm system.

Construction tenders are now being sought.
