This area covers Main Road from the intersection at McCormacks Bay Road in the west to 124 Main Road in the east.
Remediation work has now got to a point where the shipping containers that had protected the road from hazards have been removed.
Check out this time lapse (external link)of the container removal.
Now the containers are gone, permanent security fences have been put in place to prevent people accessing the areas where there is still a risk from rockfall and cliff collapse. The road has returned to its previous layout, improving safety for cyclists and drivers.
We have worked closely with local iwi and minimise any disturbance to the caves.
Landscaping of the rockfall protection works is scheduled to be completed in June 2017.
