Horowhenua District Council carried out road works from the intersection of Foxton Shannon Road and Himatangi Block Road and just before the floodgates.

The project improved the quality of the road to a level more appropriate to its current and predicted future use. The improvements also reduce maintenance costs on these roads as the infrastructure is now more resilient.

The works involved improving the stormwater in the area, widening the road to 7.5 metres, rebuilding the road with new aggregate and applying a new chipseal surface.

Work took place from 7am to 5pm on weekdays and occasional Saturdays.

Work started in Spring 2019 and is was completed in Summer 2019.
