Due to concerns for public safety, the top part of Memorial Drive has been closed to ordinary vehicles while slips and other damage caused by Cyclone Gabrielle are repaired.
A gate has been installed about 800m before the lower car park to stop vehicles. Only vehicles involved in the repairs can go through the gate for the rest of 2023.
The slips are still moving and the repairs will be complicated. This means the road will be closed to ordinary traffic for several months.
Please enjoy your time on our beautiful maunga. Respect the maunga and take your rubbish home with you. Extra points for picking up other people’s rubbish.
