Erosion of the site, around 15 kilometres north of Gisborne, has been ongoing and was exacerbated by the high swells over the weekend.

Emergency works will involve contractors based on the beach, building a rock revetment wall to repair the site.

The works are expected to take two weeks to complete.

A 30 kilometre per hour speed restriction will be in place during the works, with the possibility of single lane closures at times.

Plan ahead for a safe, enjoyable journey. Keep up to date with:
