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.

Work planned for Benneydale sewerage reticulation network

4 Mar 2016, 11:39 AM

Waitomo District Council will carry out cleaning work on the main sewerage reticulation network in the Benneydale township next week. This will involve the use of CCTV work inside the pipework areas to determine the need for any replacements and repair work.

The work will also remove any fat deposits and large objects that can potentially block the sewerage pipe system.

WDC’s contractor HydroTech will do the work.

Any enquiries should be made to Waitomo District Council on 0800 932 4357.
