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.

Two sections of Lawrence Street in Te Kūiti will undergo watermain and pavement works, starting Monday 16 January 2023 weather permitting.

The first section of Lawrence Street (between SH30 Intersection and Mangaokewa Stream Bridge, including the Taupiri Street Intersection) will have watermain relocation works carried out. This will involve a traffic management shoulder closure on the Redwood Park side of Lawrence Street. These works are expected to take about a week to complete, weather permitting. Pedestrian access will be maintained.

Following the completion of the watermain relocation works, the second section of Lawrence Street will undergo pavement re-construction works. Lawrence Street will be closed and under traffic management. The road closure will include Lawrence Street from SH30 Intersection to the eastern side of Mangaokewa Stream Bridge, Taupiri Street from Lawrence Street to South End Loop, the Taupiri Street Car Park will also be closed. Pedestrian access will be maintained.

We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause to road users and thank you for your patience during this time.
