View Terrace to open next month

After months of construction, View Terrace in Piopio will reopen in May.
This project has been challenging, but a great feat with roading crews working through the storm damage based on criticality, priority and funding limitations.
View Terrace was one of several local roads severely impacted by Cyclone Dovi in February 2022 and was further impacted again by the Auckland Anniversary Storm earlier this year.
Urgent repair was critical, and the road has now been strengthened with a Mechanically Stabilised Earth (MSE) Wall.
General Manager Infrastructure Services, Shyamal Ram says he is pleased with the outcome.
“We would like to thank the residents of View Terrace in particular for their patience.
“When another storm forced us to close the road, the local residents pulled together and allowed us access to and from their properties. An amazing showing of community spirit.”
Minor works will still take place after the road is re-opened.
