Taupo Road Temp Closure on 9 Nov
To progress the installation of the new watermain under the NIMT railway and Hakiaha Street, Taupo Road will be closed on Wednesday 9 November between 8:00am and 5:00pm for the excavation of a geotech pit.
The road will be closed at the Paraone Street intersection and will affect all traffic coming from Matapuna into town.
Alternative access will be via a detour on Paraone Street and Taitua Street.
Vehicle traffic heading to Matapuna will not be affected by this closure.
A pit will be excavated up to 4.0m depth in Taupo Road on the town side of Paraone Street, material stockpiled on the road before backfilling and reinstatement of the sealed surface.
The pit is to see the types of subsurface material and location and depth of all underground pipes in this area.
The road may be opened earlier should the excavations and reinstatement progress ahead of schedule.
Council apologises for the inconvenience this may cause for residents.
