Heavy Rain Watch - What you need to know

Metservice NZ has issued a Heavy Rain Watch for the Waikato region, in place from 2am–3pm, Wednesday 1 February.

Given the large amount of rainfall that our district has experienced over the past few days, we are urging residents to continue to take care and stay aware of the conditions in their area. Further rainfall could quickly exacerbate existing slips, river levels and produce further flooding quite quickly.

Maintenance work underway to keep Waitomo District bridges safe and resilient

21 Jun 2018, 10:02 AM

Waitomo District Council has commenced a bridge maintenance programme across the roading network including:

  • Te Mahoe Road
  • Manganui Road 
  • Waikawau Road 
  • Matiere Road 
  • Pomarangai Road 
  • Matiere Road 
  • Ramaroa Road 
  • Tikitiki Road 
  • Aharoa Road 
  • Manu Road 
  • Te Waitere Road
  • Marokopa Road


Bridges are inspected each year. The maintenance work that is required on bridges is identified and carried out to ensure structures are provided for safe access by road users.

Issues that we look for include the build-up of debris, structural damage to the foundations, painting of structures, replacement of marker posts and a general evaluation of the condition of the bridge structure.

All roads will remain open while the bridge repairs are underway.
