Road works and disruptions

Road works and disruptions occurs on New Plymouth District roads for a variety of reasons:


  • NPDC operates a continuous programme of road maintenance and upgrades throughout the year.
  • Road works and other activities such as events, parades or car rallies can require temporary road closures.
  • Road works may also be carried out when services such as water, power, and telecommunications require maintenance, or as part of larger infrastructure projects.



While we endeavour to minimise disruption to your travel plans, temporary detours are sometimes necessary and delays may occur.
