Planned Roadworks and Closures

Graham Valley South Branch Road

Caution and the use of a 4WD is advised as the road can become very slippery when wet. Please note that this road can be closed any any time due to slips.

Kaituna Bridge repairs

The bridge is currently safe for pedestrians and cyclists to cross but remains closed for vehicle access. In the meantime, three property owners have provided access through their farms for locals.

Wangapeka River Road - Dart River Ford

The Dart River ford is a concrete ford that water will flow over at all times. Due care needs to be taken when assessing to cross or not. Trampers need to allow an extra day in case the river is high as there is no other available crossing.
