Riddiford Bridge – measures in place

A visual inspection on 12 December of Riddiford bridge (94 Te Awaiti Road) has uncovered some significant cracks in the supporting piers. 

Council will be putting temporary traffic restrictions in place for the bridge as a safety precaution, while we commission an urgent detailed assessment. Until further notice, the following restrictions apply to the bridge:

  1. Vehicles (<20,000 kg) can cross the bridge.
  2. Vehicles are to cross the bridge at less than 10km/hr.

Signage will be put up immediately and we will be communicating these restrictions to residents and the local community.
