On this page you will find information about CHB's Roading network and any information regarding weather events that impact our roads
Please find below details of those roads and bridges in the district where access is currently restricted or caution advised due to general damage, maintenance requirements and the devastating effects of Cyclone Gabrielle. Our Land and Transport Team together with our post-cyclone Road to Recovery team are working hard to prioritise and address all damage on the roading network and thank you for your patience and support as we manage the workload.
