Road Closures

Road Closures due to extreme weather conditions

Updated 20 July 2017

Tangahoe Valley Road

There is temporary foot access over the slip site on Tangahoe Valley – for residents only - We will endeavour to keep this open over the weekend

It is of a low standard and care is required

Work will begin clearing the trees from the site tomorrow and go on through Saturday

Work to open the slip to one lane access will start on Monday

Hopefully will have this completed on Monday

Further work to fully clear slip site will start on Tuesday and continue for several days

This programme is dependent on suitable weather and the slip not slipping further given the wet weather forecast for tonight through to Sunday evening


Check to have a look for any other road closures/accidents etc on State Highways.
