Severe weather road repairs

Northland has suffered from at least ten different significant weather events since July 2022. Across the Far North, storm flooding and Cyclone Gabrielle caused considerable damage to roads and footpaths. More than 140 slips were reported and 179 individual roads impacted – the highest on record for a single event.

We have restored most roads but are still working on 99 sites in the Far North District. Repairs are complex and will take time.
