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.

Te Ara Tika project reaches milestone

16 Jul 2021, 3:00 PM

A big milestone this Sunday! The main span beams will be craned into position on top of the columns on Sunday between 8am and 11am.
The two main-span, prestressed concrete beams will be installed first, above the railway tracks, using a large, 220t crane. The crane will then be shifted to the Rora Street side from where all the ramp slabs on that side will be lifted into position the next day, Monday 19 July.
The remaining ramp slabs forming the spiral will be craned into position once work on the basketball half-court and surrounds beneath the beam has been completed. This is currently scheduled for 3 August 2021.
