Major work for Whanganui River Road
We appreciate your understanding and patience as we work through the huge task of reinstating the road for the benefit of locals and visitors.
Work near Ruapehu District boundary
The Whanganui District Council has awarded a contract to Higgins Contractors Ltd to construct a retaining wall on the Whanganui River Road 55.7km from the intersection of State Highway 4 and Whanganui River Road. The work is very close to the territorial boundary between Whanganui and Ruapehu Districts.
The site is managed by stop/go traffic control. While short delays may be expected, the work does not require a full road closure. The work is scheduled to be completed by Christmas 2016.
