Completed Projects

Mangaweka Bridge Replacement

1 JUNE 2022

The new Mangaweka bridge was officially opened on 20 May 2022 one month ahead of schedule.

The existing historic 115-year-old bridge was closed for repairs in October 2016. On inspection, it found that the timber beams were weakened beyond repair. The bridge was temporarily reopened with a maximum weight limit of 6 tonne while Council began the design and consenting process to construct a new bridge.

Bulls Bus Lane and Town Square

20 MAY 2022

Work began in November 2021 to create a new bus lane behind Te Matapihi - Bulls Community Centre. The new bus lane replaced the old bus lane on Bridge St which was permanently closed on 27 May 2022.

As part of this project a new green space was created at the front of Te Matapihi to be used as a town square. This space has become a hub for the community and new lighting artwork is scheduled to be installed and unveiled late August.
