Wairoa District Council is responsible for the maintenance of around 830km of roads around the district, not including State Highways, which are taken care of by the NZ Transport Agency. With such a vast network of routes, it is not surprising that 50 percent of rates go towards roading.

Wairoa District Council is responsible for the maintenance of around 830km of roads around the district, not including State Highways, which are taken care of by the NZ Transport Agency.

The Council's Infrastructure Business Unit (IBU) is responsible for managing the maintenance of the road, while the actual work is carried out by contractors. It's a big job, which is why it has a dedicated team assigned to the task.

IBU is also responsible for organising emergency repair work on local roads. Please contact us to report any damage to local roads or public infrastructure.

Information regarding the status of the State Highways can be found at the NZTA website.
