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.

2022/23 Resurfacing Programme commences

14 Dec 2022, 8:37 AM

Now that the summer months are upon us and the warm weather will be here for a while, the first section of Waitomo District Council’s annual resurfacing programme has begun.
Our roading contractors have commenced work on Papakauri Road, and resealing is soon to begin on Mangatoa Road. The remainder of the programme will commence in 2023.
More than 32km of resurfacing will take place over several streets and roads throughout the district between December 2022 and March 2023. Resealing is required to maintain the condition of our roads. The average life of a seal coat in our district, is approximately 11 years.
The resealing will be undertaken by Inframax Construction Ltd and subcontractor, Higgins.
