Our roads have taken a hammering with recent heavy rainfalls. Particularly across our coastal road infrastructure, we have experienced major damage. You can expect roading conditions to worsen in the coming days and weeks, with increased potholes and slips continuing, due to the ground being so wet.
Please report any issues on our network by phoning 06 857 8060 24/7 or use the Snap Send Solve app.
Please call 0800 4 HIGHWAYS (0800 44 44 49) to report any issues on the State Highway.
Keep up to date with the latest roading information and check for road closures and status of roads below.
Please drive to the conditions and be prepared for those conditions to change.
If you find a new slip, contact Council urgently on 24/7 on 06 857 8060 so we can assess the damage.
Your safety is our highest priority. Please do not attempt to cross major slips due to the risk of further collapse.
We desperately want to make repairs to the many large slips across the district. This simply hasn’t been possible due to the wet ground conditions.
