- Reikorangi Road was closed to all traffic on Monday, 13 June 2022, after trees were damaged during high winds and were at risk of falling on the road.
Arborists have removed dangerously damaged trees and the road was reopened on Thursday, 16 June.
The site was handed over to Electra to reconnect the power supply.
Stop/go traffic management is in place while they work in the area.
The Waikanae River Trail has reopened. The trail was closed for its full length, due to safety hazards including fallen and partially fallen trees and branches, holes, undercutting, flooding and silt buildup.
It is still muddy in places, especially on the northern side. Further work to repair the track will continue, and will likely take several weeks to complete.
