ROAD RESURFACING PROGRAMME TO START
With the warmer weather now upon us, Council's roading contractors will be starting the first portion of the annual road resurfacing programme this week.
Phase one of Waitomo’s resealing programme will see almost 9km of roads being resealed at 15 different sites, including urban and rural sealed roads. The resealing is necessary to restore the condition of the sealed road surface of some of the older seal coats, in much the same way that a house needs to be repainted every few years. The average life of a seal coat in our district, is approximately 11 years.
The largest lengths of resealing will be on Ramaroa Road off State Highway 4 at 2.3km, followed by Totoro Road at 1.4km.
The resealing programme will kickstart tomorrow (23 November) with urban roads, which will include Matai, Eketone, Ailsa, Alexandra, Gladstone, Grey, Hinerangi, John and Julian Streets in Te Kuiti and Tui and Kea Streets in Piopio.
Other roads include Somerville, Hangatiki East and Marokopa Roads.
There will be more resurfacing undertaken, post-Christmas - we will keep you updated of our programme.
The work will be undertaken by Higgins as Inframax Construction Ltd’s sealing subcontractor.
