This interactive map provides information on bridges on the Hastings District Council network, including those with posted weight and speed restrictions.

Many bridges across the district were damaged during Cyclone Gabrielle, and numerous roads impacted with flooding and slips, particularly in rural areas. Information on bridge and road closures can be found on our Road Works page

Below is a breakdown of short term solutions currently in place for those bridges lost during Cyclone Gabrielle.
