Mangaorongo Road Sealed Smoothing

On 12 June 2018 tenders were invited for earthworks, environmental controls, vegetation clearing, establishment or surface water channels, water channel cut outs, sigh benching, fencing, hydro seeding, culvert works, pavement construction, first coat sealing and line marking on Mangaorongo Road.

Tenders closed on 16 July 2018 with 5 tenders being received and the contract was awarded to Inframax Construction Ltd.


What is happening? 

Inframax Construction Ltd will be widening and upgrading Mangaorongo Road from State Highway 3 for approximately 7.1 kms.

The main works will commence on 15 October 2018 and continue through until April 2019.


The works programme

Traffic will be under one lane stop/go operations during the day and open to two lanes outside hours of work.

The works will be completed in 2km sections to avoid excessive delays.

Inframax asks for drivers to allow an extra 5 minutes to get through the site while works are being carried out.



After the Christmas break the road will be closed for 1-2 weeks - 3km from the state highway.  This is due to the road being lowered by approximately one metre.  The closure is an important safety consideration as the existing width of the road is too narrow to allow for safe passage while the road works are going ahead with heavy machinery being at risk of potentially falling on passing cars should through access be allowed. More information will follow regarding this, closer to the time.


Working hours

The proposed working hours will be from 6 am to 6 pm, Monday to Saturday. 

There will be no work on statutory and public holidays.


Road users

Please exercise caution when coming into the site from your driveways during construction and look for one of the workers to direct you into and out of the sites.

All endeavours will be made to complete works as soon as possible and minimize any inconvenience to residents.
