Local Roads Maintenance

16 August - Barbara Avenue, Whangamata

Works to improve drainage along Barbara Avenue, Whangamata is expected to start on Monday 19 August to address flooding issues which have occurred in this area following high rainfall events.

The walkway connecting the service lane and Barbara Avenue will be temporarily closed for construction until 30 August, however re-opened each day after works are completed. Additional works on Barbara Avenue will also be completed, however this will have minimal effect on the traffic flows.

We appreciate your patience during this time.
