Road Improvement Consultation

Proposed Revision of Road Improvement Program


Otorohanga District Council has a long history of progressively improving the local roads of the District. In recent times the focus of these improvement works has been on easing corners on sealed roads, but our roads have now been improved to the point where it has become difficult to justify further improvements of this type.

Council is therefore proposing to revise the form of its road improvement program, reducing overall expenditure and focussing its efforts on a combination of:

a). Widening existing narrow sealed roads in conjunction with scheduled pavement reconstruction works; and

b). Resuming a gradual program of sealing unsealed roads, prioritising these works based on a combination of technical and economic factors that are likely to favour sealing of roads that are busier and/or service areas of land with higher rateable values.

Council invites feedback on this proposal. Such feedback should be made in writing before 15 February and addressed to:
