An anchored piled wall is to be designed by the NZ Transport Agency to be built along the seaward side of State Highway 6 to support the highway at Knight's Point if there is any further deterioration at the site of the slip.
Works to repair the cliff above State Highway 30 (SH30) at Ruato Bay will start soon after the NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) and its project partner, Rotorua District Council (RDC), awarded the contract for the repairs to HEB construction.
The NZ Transport Agency advises of the following closures for motorway improvements. Closures start at 9pm and finish at 5am, unless otherwise stated. Work delayed by bad weather will be completed at the next available date, prior to Friday, 9 August.
