Moonshine Hill Road: reduced access

Recent storms have caused an embankment to slip close to 815 Moonshine Hill Road, reducing the road to a single lane. The embankment has an 8 – 10 metre drop down to the stream below, and further regression could make the road impassable. This section of Moonshine Hill Road is managed by Porirua City Council, who will assess the damage and repair requirements on isolated sections of the road.

In order for Porirua City Council to carry out its work, this area of Moonshine Hill Road will be temporarily closed on Wednesday 8, Thursday 9, and possibly Friday 10 February, between 9.00 am and 3.00 pm. There will be no through-access between SH58 (Haywards Hill Rd) and SH2 (River Rd) during these times.

If you live or work in this area, please make any necessary detours as appropriate to reach your destination.
