Heatherlea East Road remains closed to through traffic as Council is replacing a culvert.

The road was first closed on Friday 23 August due to an under-slip caused by a blocked culvert. Since then, the road has been closed either side of the slip.

While the road is closed to through traffic residents have been able to access their homes via SH57 and SH1.

Acting Group Manager Infrastructure Services, Kevin Peel, thanked the community for their patience.

“This was unplanned but necessary work and the residents have been very understanding”.

The road is expected to be opened by the end of the week.
