Weather Warning for Waitomo
Waitomo District is expecting a significant amount of rainfall over the next few days. Once again, this will likely have a major impact on our roads and farmland. We ask residents to please take caution and do not venture out into the weather if you do not need to. And if possible, move stock to higher ground.
Surface flooding and excess water may also slow the drainage of the stormwater and wastewater network. We are not expecting any significant impact to the network, water will just take a little longer to drain.
We will keep you updated as information comes to hand.
Stay safe.

New footpaths for Mokau

30 Apr 2021, 9:05 AM


Residents and visitors to Mokau will soon have safer access around the seaside town with the installation of new footpaths.

Construction work will be undertaken by Inframax Construction Ltd and staged over a 3-4 week period, beginning on Monday 3 May 2021.

General manager infrastructure services Tony Hale says new footpaths will mean residents and visitors to Mokau will have safer access to amenities in the town.

“The work comprises new footpaths, a pedestrian refuge island, and extending and marking a truck stop area,” he says.

While construction work is happening, there will be several days where entrance access may be closed off to residents.

“It will be a little bit of pain for a long term gain, and we will do our best to minimise the disruptions and will work in with you where possible,” says Tony.

“When your entrance is closed you will be able to park on the roadside.”

Work on entrances will start between 3-17 May 2021, and will be closed for use for five working days, weather dependent.

“We apologise for any inconvenience this will cause.”
