The major works planned during January/February/March are:

  • Stage 3 - Broadway/Follett Street Intersection - work commenced in January. This is major work in a confined area, expect delays and a detour are in place.
  • Mangahoe Road – road widening and overlay is continuing during February and March; expect minor delays.
  • Spooners Hill Road – road widening and overlaying work is due to start in February; expect minor delays.

The Ruapehu DC advise that Jilesen Contractors Ltd are scheduled to start work on replacing the Rangiwaea Stream culvert 8.6km from State Highway 49 and on Whangaehu Valley Road.

Work involves the removal of the existing concrete arched culvert and replacing with a new concrete box culvert.

Work will start on Monday 18 February 2019 at 9am and the work is expected to be completed within five to seven days.

Due to the necessity to excavate the road to undertake the works the road will be closed to all traffic for the duration of the works.

Council advise that all vehicles use alternative routes accordingly. No access will be available at the site.

Note: The work is weather dependent and works may be delayed without notice to ensure construction during fine weather.

Council apologises for any inconvenience this may cause.
