Roadworks or Closures

Currently there are no temporary or emergency road closures.


If you are planning to hold an event which means temporarily closing a road, find out what you need to do by following the link below. 

Working on the District's roads

Before any work is started on roads in the District, a Corridor Access Request (CAR) and a Traffic Management Plan must be submitted to us so that we know about any proposed works. 

For further information about what is required, follow the link below. 

Locating underground pipes

For information on how to locate and protect underground pipes, cables and wires in the area of the proposed works, follow the link below.

State Highway road closures

The New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) manages the temporary closure of any State Highway. Regulations specify a 42 day public notice period, so applicants are advised to contact the NZTA as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
