Tarawera Road culvert replacement



9 June 2021

People travelling past Lake Tikitapu (Blue Lake) from next week will need to allow for minor delays while contractors work to replace the culvert on Tarawera Road.

The work will begin on Monday 14 June and will take about two weeks to complete (weather dependent). During that time the road will be down to one lane and traffic management and temporary traffic signals will be in place.

The work to replace the culvert is essential to avoid any risk to access to Tarawera. Culverts are a large pipe or structure which allows water to flow under the road.

While work is underway temporary speed limits will be in place and motorists should take extra care if they are travelling through the area.

Council apologises for any inconvenience caused during the work.
