Written by on April 11, 2011

Thanks to Downer, sponsors of our Community Noticeboard we’re posting regular Road Repair Updates. You’ll also be able to hear updates on road works happening on the island on our community notice board broadcast on 88.3 & 107.4FM


 Latest road maintenance/repair updates from Downer are:

 A major retaining wall is being constructed on Waiheke Road, at the top of the hill by the Art Gallery. Work starts on Monday April 18th and will be ongoing for three weeks using traffic lights during working hours. Please be patient.

New footpath installation to be completed on Mako St by 22nd April

Please note the new layout at Church Bay/ Mako intersection – it’s been designed to slow the speed of merging traffic and improve safety.

Work at Erua Road will be finished by April 15th. Note that the parking areas are due to be sealed next summer. Please note that a shoulder has been created on the northern side to improve safety for pedestrians and is not intended for parking.

Most of the programmed major work is now complete but maintenance is ongoing. There are plenty of jobs to complete before winter so always look out for works around the island and obey the speed limits. 


Latest storm repairs are programmed for: 


Miro Rd is currently being constructed
273 Hill Rd
