A picture of the washout on SH1 where it crosses the Waikawa Stream just south of Tatum Park. Some have said the probable cause was work being carried out in the past 2 weeks as part of the “upgrade” from Otaki to Levin. It is certainly not much of an upgrade at the junction of Waikawa Beach Road / SH1.
Another washout which is nearly as big occurred on the Waikawa Beach Road where 4 months work was completed last week! Have not got a photo of that yet but it was filled in by 1pm on Monday.
