Central Hawke’s Bay District Council, with funding from the Provincial Growth Fund are improving transport infrastructure for the communities along the Porangahau and Wimbledon roads.
In June 2019 Council received $20.1m in Provincial Growth Funding (PGF) from Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) to improve transport infrastructure for communities on Porangahau and Wimbledon Roads.
With growing volumes of freight using the route, reliability and resilience needs to be assured if the regional economy is to be protected and opportunities for productivity are enhanced.
The conclusion of this project will provide future generations with safe and durable roading infrastructure along what is a key thoroughfare in our district. You will be kept informed in advance of any construction works due to take place, which may result in a delay to your journey.
Council apologise for any short-term disruption that the project may cause.

Work will continue through to June 2022 across the programme.
This work is now underway, follow the detail across the three sub-projects below:
Bridge inspections and associated High Productivity Motor Vehicle (HPMV) loading assessments were completed on all bridges and large culverts on the route. This resulted in identifying four bridges and seven culverts requiring strengthening to lift the capacity to allow the HPMV traffic.
