UPDATE #4: Both lanes of Oropi Road are now open to vehicles. A temporary 50km/h speed limit is in place across the bridge. A permanent repair will be completed in a few weeks' time.

UPDATE #3: One lane of Oropi Road between Cheyne Road and Oropi Stream Bridge is expected to open to traffic from 5.30pm today. A 24-hour stop/go system will be in place.

UPDATE #2: By the end of today, a temporary solution will be in place to open one lane of traffic.

UPDATE: At this stage we don't know when the road will reopen, but we'll have a better idea later today once a geotechnical engineer has completed a site assessment. We'll keep you posted.

BOP Regional Council has let us know there is no impact to their regional or school bus runs. If you use a private school bus service, please check with your child’s school for any disruptions.

ROAD CLOSURE: OROPI ROAD
Please be advised that both lanes of Oropi Road, south of SH29, are currently closed between Cheyne Road and the Oropi Stream Bridge. The closure is due to a tomo (sinkhole) of approximately 1.5 m wide and 4 m deep near the Oropi Stream Bridge that has opened up in the middle of Oropi Road.

Police are managing traffic. People are advised to use the alternative route by going south on SH36 to Oropi Gorge Road and then back onto Oropi Road. Due to the size of the sinkhole, it is likely to take some time to re-open the road.

We will provide further updates as more information becomes available.

All it takes is a kind gesture to change someone’s day. From paying it forward in line at a cafe to giving flowers to a friend ‘just because’ - this month we’re encouraging our members and supporters to make New Zealand a better place one random act of kindness at a time.

The options for doing so are endless! Being kind doesn’t have to cost a thing, after all a smile is free. For those who want to go the extra mile, here’s some other ideas: Buy extra kai at the grocery store to donate to a food pantry, help someone with a broken down car or flat tire, bring treats into work for colleagues, send an encouraging text to someone who needs it, let a car into the traffic ahead of you, take a gift over to new neighbours and introduce yourself, write positive messages in chalk on sidewalks around your neighbourhood, or surprise loved ones with a visit.

This month also coincides with World Humanitarian Day on August 19th and Random Acts of Kindness Day (New Zealand) which is on September 1st.

Let us know how you’re spreading kindness in your community by tagging us in your posts + using the following hashtag so we can see what you get up to:
