Road sealing delayed
Weather has slowed progression of the alternate coastal route seal extension project. The project is tracking behind and recent weather events have slowed progress. The Roading Company has completed all the earthworks and drainage works on the Otara Haldane Road section. Construction on this section is nearing completion with 60 per cent of the route sealed. Earthworks and drainage have started along the Waipapa section, and are about 50 per cent completed.
