Whian Whian Road - Simes Bridges

During the February 2022 natural disaster, the northern abutment of Simes Bridge on Whian Whian Road was impacted. Temporary works were carried out to restore access and the site is currently limited to one-lane traffic access under a give-way arrangement. The bridge is currently under restrictions and monitoring due to the flood damage. However, it was opened on August 10, to two lanes at reduced speeds to improve travel for residents. The bridge will continue to be sign posted limiting motorists to 40km/hr and speed bumps have been installed on the road entering the bridge.
