Okoki Road culvert replacement

In the second half of 2022 a culvert on Okoki Road deteriorated just west of the Kaka Road intersection, causing the road to slump. NPDC will fix the damage by craning into place a replacement 3mx3m box culvert and then reinstating the road. This will involve a 200-tonne crane and two 25T diggers.
