Orams Road Bridge will be closed from Saturday 22 April for 5 months, reopening in October. This is so that we can rebuild the bridge to widen the motorway beneath for an additional fourth lane. Detour routes for traffic, buses, pedestrians and cyclists will be in place so allow extra time for your journey.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation. For more information please call 0508 6982 724 or click here.
Kia ora neighbours, if you’ve ever dreamed of having an image of New Zealand First leader Winston Peters wearing a cowboy hat, proudly hanging in your living room, now’s your chance to make it a reality. An artwork of Peters, created using coffee, red wine and tea is for sale on Trade Me. The current bid is almost $300, would you buy this?
Due to the long weekend, the council's kerbside collections will be one day later from 26 – 31 October.
