Ohura - Matiere Road
Golf Road - Taumarunui
CROTONS ROAD BRIDGE - RUATITI (2.6km)
Temporary bridge in place - Opening at 5pm 16 May
A temporary bridge has been put in place in the interim until the new bridge is completed. Caution is required when crossing as there are ramps at either end so vehicles need to travel slowly. Maximum length of vehicles allowed on bridge is 10.6m
Sections of Ongarue Waimiha Road and Poro O Tarao Road will be line marked when the weather allows. A short section on Poro O Tarao Road between 5 and 6 km is being managed as unsealed and will be sealed once the Poro O Tarao bridge reopens.
Work has commenced on Ongarue Waimiha Road near Ongarue Village. Re-establishing to continue with the earthworks is currently dependent on the weather.
Two further sections on Ongarue Waimiha Road (13.1km to 13.85km & 17.56 - 18.05km) are also programmed for reconstruction.
