Road works

The work of maintaining the roads in and around our city is constant. Council is responsible for maintaining many road assets. Road works can involve anything from minor work to fix a pot hole which takes only a few minutes to a major project to rebuild a section of road that has completely worn out.

Weekly updates of roading works taking place around the city can be found in the weekly bulletin.

To report a problem with road works or any damage or faults with a road contact Council.

Minor safety work

Every year Council does a range of small safety projects around the city. The Minor Safety Works Programme includes improving intersection visibility, installing roundabouts and speed cushions in residential streets to help address speed issues and putting in new pedestrian crossings and refuges. For more information on this programme contact Council. 


Resealing work ensures that city's road network remains safe, efficient and able to cope with the amount of traffic using it. Most resealing takes place in the summer months, excluding the busy Christmas and New Year period. This year new chipseal and asphalt surfacing on our roads will cost about $3 million. 

Care is taken to try and minimise the impact on road users, but some disruption is inevitable.

For more information on this contact Kevin King or Rodney Nicholas at Tauranga City Council.
