Of the approximately 13,000 total culverts across the HDC network that required inspection post-cyclone, more than 2,200 required cleaning/unblocking and almost as many again required at least some repair. This work is ongoing.

As well as the destruction of the thirteen bridges during Cyclone Gabrielle, five large culverts were destroyed.  The focus now is on repair and restoration across the network. A programme of rebuilds and repairs has been developed with an estimated cost of $800 million. Due to the scale and complexity of the work required, this will likely take seven to ten years to be completed. Hastings District Council is prioritising work based on the vulnerability of roads to new weather events, levels of road use and the numbers of people affected. 

Details of these culvert rebuilds will appear below as they are confirmed.
