Road Closures and Updates - June 2022
2 Jun 2022, 3:11 PM
The weather is keeping our roading crew very busy. Crews are continuing with the clean up of slips, trees and washouts on Te Anga, Taharoa, Marokopa, Mangatoa, Soundy, Pomarangai, Aria, Totoro, Mokauiti, Mapara South, Tapuwae, Mangaokewa and Mangarino Roads.
We are continuing to receive information from the public (via our Service Request system) and also from onsite inspections. Crews are also being notified of any new issues that require urgent attention.
Roading crews continue to clean up slips to make safe for all our road users. However, constant rainfall continues to be challenge with sites needing to be cleared again.
Please take extreme care while driving in our District – especially Te Anga, Taharoa, Marokopa, Mangatoa, Manganui, Aria, Waitahi Roads.
The majority of the main slips were cleared on Friday and roads were kept open to one lane. The priority was to make sites safe, especially for the long weekend. One crew worked on Saturday morning on Mangatoa Road to continue what couldn’t be cleared on Friday.
Roading crews are currently checking and cleaning sites on Te Anga, Taharoa, Marokopa and Mangatoa Roads.
