Two Waikawau bridges, north of Colville, have been replaced. The road is now open with the number 3 bridge open and a detour bridge while work is being completed on the number four bridge. Please note there is a 6 tonne weight limit on the bridge until mid September.
Bluff Road, (link road between Kuaotunu and Matarangi) is closed until further notice. An overhanging bluff about 350 meters from the Matarangi end of the road has become a high safety risk for vehicles and pedestrians.
