North Island state highway recovery – road status

Waka Kotahi has developed a new dashboard with a GIS (geospatial) map that presents a visualisation of the status of North Island state highways impacted by weather events in early 2023 – Northland, Waikato, Hawkes Bay and Gisborne. The new tool, released on 20 March 2023, includes a dashboard (with the same information from our pdf maps below), and an interactive GIS map with various layers and links for more information.

The maps show what state highway access is available for the regions that have been affected by severe weather events together with the status of some key local authority roads.

Please note: the maps will only be updated again by exception, should future weather events cause widespread impact to the transport network.
