In recent times there have been a few very serious and even fatal accidents on the road between Ōtaki and Levin. That’s hardly surprising, given the fairly narrow road is full of not only cars and motorbikes, but also occasional cyclists, and a lot of vans, huge truck and trailer units, many with oversize loads, slow-moving farm vehicles and tractors, campervans, and vehicles of all kinds towing trailers, small and large.

Extracts from the Project Update:

On Monday 5 February the New Zealand Transport Agency will be presenting the shortlist of corridor options for the Ōtaki to north of Levin project.

The shortlist of options has been developed following our last round of engagement with the community in June 2017 …

Information will also be available online from Monday 5 February at www.nzta.govt.nz/otaki-levin-project.

From 7 February until 9 March, our shop at 183 Oxford Street, Levin will be open every Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 10am-4pm, and Thursday from 12pm-6pm. Feel free to drop in to speak to a member of the project team. No appointment is required. We’re also holding eight community information sessions during February and March.

The local information session will be on Saturday 10 February from 10am to 2pm at the Manakau Community Hall, 12 Mokena Kohere Street, Manakau.

Will we see you at the local information session?

  1. And from today’s news about a crash by the Manakau overbridge (Monday 05 February 2018):

    The road was closed earlier this morning after the crash and rail services were also suspended as the truck was left precariously near the tracks.

    By the time one lane was opened later in the morning, traffic had backed up more than 4km in both directions, almost to Levin in the north and to Otaki in the south.
