Kaiwhata Road closed – 11 November 2020

Kaiwhata Road is closed due to a slip blocking the Kaiwhata River, causing flooding across the road at Kummerstein.
Signage advising the road is closed has been placed at Kaiwhata/Te Wharau Rd intersection with signage at the Kummerstein boundary.

Kaiwhata Road is still accessible from Homewood and Te-Wharau but travel over the Kaiwhata River bridge is not possible.

An assessment of the slip will be made when it is safe to do so, but the road is likely remain closed for several days.

Please follow this post for updates.


Lincoln Road – current scheduled programme of works
