Wet weather slows down work to widen Waitohu Valley Road
A run of wet weather over that last month has slowed down progress to widen Waitohu Valley Road in Ōtaki.
Work to widen Waitohu Valley Road to address safety concerns raised by residents through the 2016/17 Annual Plan commenced in June.
Infrastructure Services Group Manager Sean Mallon says at this stage Council contractors are still on track to have the work completed by the end of September but wet weather is hampering progress.
“Approximately 50 percent of the road widening has been completed and sealed, with another 10% nearing completion. Work to complete the balance is progressing as weather allows,” said Mr Mallon.
Traffic management will remain in place on Waitohu Valley Road until the work is complete.
