Section of Totoro Road Mahoenui Closed to Heavy Traffic Until Further Notice

18 Apr 2019, 2:44 PM

A section of Totoro Road will be closed to heavy vehicles on Thursday 18th April until further notice, due to a tomo which has opened up on the road. Trucks are still able to use Totoro Road for deliveries either side of the tomo but can’t pass the area in question.  See map for the approximate location marked with a red circle.

The road remains open to light vehicles passing through.

WDC advises people to allow extra time for the journey while this work is underway and thanks everyone for their co-operation while this repair is completed.
