Invitation for Tenders

Reading of Otorohanga Water Meters


Otorohanga District Council invites tenders for a contract to undertake 2 to 3 rounds per year of reading water meters in Otorohanga, for a period of potentially up to 5 years. A high level of reliability and accuracy is required in the undertaking of these works.


This contract would be a suitable opportunity for a local person (perhaps an active semi-retired person) to supplement their income with around 4 weeks of work per year.


Tender documents containing further details of the contract are available from the Council offices.


Tenders must be received by Council by 5.00pm on Wednesday 16 August 2017.


Contract 1026 - Mangaorongo Road Sealed Smoothing

Tenders are invited for sealed smoothing on approximately 5km of Mangaorongo Road, from its intersection with SH3, north of Otorohanga.


For further information contact Robyn Kehoe at or 07 873 4000.  Documents are available on Tenderlink.


Tenders will close at the Otorohanga District Council office at 2.00pm on Monday 28 August 2017.

Speed Restriction  - Mangaorongo Road

Please be advised of the following:

After careful consideration it is the decision of the Engineering Manager to support the Roading Team Division in their recommendation to reduce the Posted Speed Limit on Mangaorongo Road from number 316 Mangaorongo Road and for 300 metres thereafter to 70 KPH.

This is due to the reduced and uneven integrity of the pavement surface. This speed restriction will remain in place until the proposed ‘Mangaorongo Sealed Smoothing’ project is undertaken during the next season.

Road users are asked to observe and adhere to this speed restriction, in the interest of safety for all.

If you have any further questions or queries, please forward them to the Otorohanga District Council Traffic Management Coordinator.
