Repairs to large flood damaged retaining walls supporting SH94 above the river in the Hollyford Road intersection area should be finished this summer.
Several sections of wall were destroyed during an intense rainstorm in February 2020 when 900mm of rain saturated the area in just three days.
Restoring the highway to its pre-flood width through this narrow gorge section is largely complete, while work is commencing on rebuilding the last storm damaged retaining wall in the Windfall Creek area.
A top priority for the Milford Road Alliance throughout this massive $9 million repair job has been minimising delays for people using this road.
