Mohakau Road – closed until further notice due to slip
Access through Mohakau Road, in the eastern Stratford district, is currently unavailable due to a slip forming near a retaining wall construction site.
The recent weather event to pass through Taranaki has caused the road adjacent to the retaining wall to crack, slip, become unstable and therefore unsafe for vehicle access.
Victoria Araba, Assets Director for Stratford District Council says, “It is expected that the repair of the road and completion of the retaining wall will take up to three weeks, weather permitting.”
During this time, the road will be closed to all vehicles.
“Residents north of the construction site will need to take Mohakau Road to Makuri Road and onto Douglas Road to reach State Highway 43,” she says. “We understand this is a huge disruption to locals in the area, and especially for the Huiakama School district. We’ll be working as quickly as possible to get the road repaired and safe for vehicle use.”
