All roads, culverts, and bridges have been inspected, and faults logged post Cyclone Gabrielle. The community can be assured that we are aware of the scale of damage, and the time, and cost to repair. At this stage, our estimated response and recovery cost is around $800M and will take 5-7 years to repair/rebuild. How this is funded will affect the timing of the rebuild and the development of any high-level programme.
Hastings District Council is prioritizing work based on road hierarchy and well-known high-intensity farming routes. These priorities may change when we receive new information or when road conditions change.
Our road maintenance team is collaborating with our contractors to carry out initial response activities, ensuring the safety of our vulnerable network. You can observe this work happening across the network.
Our team of consultants is currently focused on investigating and designing solutions for more significant challenges, such as major landslides, bridge projects, and culvert repairs within our road network. These projects often involve geotechnical investigations and surveying during the design phase before construction. Progress is being made, but you may notice smaller tasks completed while larger sites are temporarily untouched.
To find out more information about specific bridge, culvert, slip and roading recovery work, simply click on the tiles below. These recovery works are then broken down by location - Tutira, Kaweka, Maraekakaho and Poukawa (as per the map opposite).
If a road user has a query about a site in particular, and there are reasons to elevate the site to a higher priority, we welcome them to call us on (06) 871 5000
