Where to find current road status information?

Published 16 Jan 2023

The heavy rains we have been experiencing last year and this year have put significant stress on our roading networks right across the country, including Tararua.

Our roading teams are working as hard as they can to keep up with damage caused by the ongoing disruptive weather. Our teams try to update the Tararua road status website page as frequently as possible, especially during severe weather events.

Please note that State Highways including the Saddle Rd and Pahiatua Track are the responsibility of Waka Kotahi – NZ Transport Agency. Roadwork updates can be found here or by calling 0800 4 HIGHWAYS (0800 44 44 49).
