Mangaparo & Tokirima Road
Crotons Road Bridge - Ruatiti (2.6km)
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.
Soft Spot Repairs
Contractors are attending to soft spots around the district. This process involves placing larger than usual metal in the soft spots and letting it bed down under traffic. Road metal is then placed on top and the road is graded if needed.
