Fixed restrictions, Waimatuku Flat Road
01 Jan 2022
Southland District Council has fixed restrictions of axle 1000kg and gross 3500kg weight limits for heavy motor vehicles on Waimatuku Flat Road.
The above limits apply to ‘through’ heavy traffic movements only from 27 January 2022. Limited heavy vehicle movements for the operation of farms situated on Waimauku Flat Road will still be permitted.
The restriction is necessary to protect Waimatuku Flat Road from excessive damage due to heavy motor vehicles using this road as a detour for the weight-restricted bridge on Argyle Otahuti Road (the railway overbridge situated in Waianiwa). An appropriate detour will be signed for heavy vehicles via Waianiwa Oporo Road, Oporo Flat Road and Lincoln Road.
