Rotorua District has approximately 412 kilometres of concrete, bitumen and cobblestone footpaths.
Council policy is to ensure that every street in the urban area has a footpath on at least one side of the street. We have achieved this and are now adding second footpaths to streets where necessary.
Heavy vehicles and tree roots cause nearly all of the damage to footpaths. Ground movement from water saturation or earthquakes can also affect footpaths.
If you come across damage to a footpath it is important to report this to council as soon as possible.You can do this by calling our Customer Centre on 07 3484199.
