Manakau and Ōhau

Following earlier community consultation, we’ve improved road safety in the Manakau and Ōhau townships.

In both Manakau and Ōhau:

  • the speed limit has been reduced to 80km/h through the townships
  • threshold treatments at the entrances have been built
  • landscaping and street lighting has been added
  • road markings have been improved to provide safer cycleways/pull-off areas.

In Manakau we have also:

  • removed the southbound passing lane
  • added two pedestrian refuges, and
  • improved off-road parking.

Waitārere Beach Road Curves

Based on community feedback and to align with the overall Ōtaki to north of Levin project, the Transport Agency has decided to delay the consenting and land purchase for the Waitārere Beach Road Curves Realignment project to ensure that the outcome meets stakeholder/community expectations, addresses the specific safety concerns, and is aligned with the wider O2NL project.

We will commit to discussing/co-designing with the community any ‘interim’ safety improvement options which can be completed online between now and a decision being made on the long term solution/s.

More information on the original proposal is available below.
