Bridge Road update—Sunday 1/11: Birchville bridge collapse

Birchville bridge collapse information – Sunday 12:00 Update

Contractors continue to make excellent progress on the alternative access track and it is on target for completion on time.

Until this track is complete, rubbish cannot be collected and residents are advised to hold their rubbish at their properties until we can arrange a contractor to to collect it from Larchmont Grove.

Vehicle access is also required for mail delivery so we will contact NZ Post and ask that they hold mail until the track is completed. Newspapers will also not be able to get through, and residents are advised to suspend their services until the track is complete.

With the work advancing so quickly on the track, residents walking through need to take care as machinery will be operating in the area. Children should be accompanied by an adult on the track.

Water should continue to be boiled prior to drinking, as a precautionary measure.

Do not attempt to cross the bridge at any time.
