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 nearly completed

15 Nov 2021, 8:39 AM

The completion of Te Ara Tika has been a long time coming and we’re nearly there.
Our contractor is adding finishing touches to the bridge structure and completing the landscaping work. That will be followed by a safety check, including a building consent compliance check and sign-off, which is necessary before the bridge can be certified safe for public use. Hopefully that will be completed in the next couple of weeks.
There will be some architectural features added at a later date that we cannot access currently due to COVID restrictions. But that will not affect the timetable for when the bridge will become available for safe public use.
