Motakiora/Brook Park top section closed until further notice
For health and safety reasons, Waitomo District Council has closed the top section of Motakiora/ Brook Park for ALL recreational use until further notice.
As a result of the weekend’s heavy rainfall event, a section of track to the summit is hazardous and a large slip has taken out part of the mountain bike track, which is also popular with walkers.
There is risk of further multiple slips and damage if the rain continues.
The rotunda and toilet is still accessible, however we urge residents and users to exercise caution if entering this area.
Signage advising of the closure will be erected onsite soon. Please do not venture into the red zone.
Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.

Drone flying over Kent Street

DRONE FLYING - Kent Street, Te Kūiti
Waitomo District Council’s roading staff will be undertaking a drone survey of Kent Street where the road has slumped. The survey will help us to better understand the issue, and will also help the geotechnical team to determine remedial options.
The survey will be completed (weather permitting) this week either on Wednesday 7 September, or Thursday 8 September.
This should not cause any inconvenience to residents, apart from a drone flying above your house or in the vicinity.
Thank you for your understanding.
