Taupo District Council

This is a summary of all issues for one Council. You can go back and show all jurisdictions.

Recently fixed

  • streetlight banners3 update
    all the streetlight banners are ripped and looking tatty, taupo has a completely different set of flags saying stay here., ski here etc, we should have the same in turangi and we are 40 minutes nearer the ski field so it would be a lot more appropriate
  • No Lighting at all4 update
    It is wonderful to see that the footpath up the hill heading north from Control Gates Bridge is to be widened. One danger that I fear is the speed at which many cyclists travel down the hill and their lack of consideration for allowing a safe space between themselves and pedestrians who have no way of knowing that a "bullet" is coming from behind. Please could we now have street lights as well. It is a long dark walk/bike ride between the Norman Smith and Poihipi Rd intersections.
  • Graffiti on fences in Arthur Cres reserve2 update
    The fence that backs onto 9 Glengarry in the Arthur Cresent Reserve is tagged and more is happening.
  • Street Light Out3 update
    Street Light not working outside Number 27 Magnolia Rise Waipahihi TAUPO 3330
  • Badly needs sweeping4 update
    A car crash has left debris on the cycle path, and the whole path has not been swept for months and is covered in stones, some glass, and two driveways have mud that has washed over the cycle way
  • Fire Hydrant overgrown4 update
    Near where the Kumeroa House on SH41 burnt down and at that time the Council Mayor reported to me that the water mains were turned off at the time to errors in valve maintaenance and the fire hyrdrant 30 m to the west of the Kumeroa house was overgrown so the fire brigade did not locate it, well it is now back to that overgrown condition again.
  • Glass in the road3 update
    Glass in the road at the round-about of Carpentras Way & Acacia bay Road, also the road sign naming the street that sits at the round-about end of Carpentras Way has been removed.
  • Street light cycles on off4 update
    The streetlight immediately by the information kiosk in Rangimoana Ave flashes on/off. Been like that for ages and was missed last time S/L maintenance was done because fault doesn't show up until the lights have been on for a while.
  • washout on grass road edge, repeat notification2 update
    As previously advised on 17 July. Grass verge has been undercut by a washout, also a green plastic pipe has been exposed. On 18 July, the roading contractor to NZTA/Opus called me to advise that they have visited the site and advised that this is not part of their service area. They mentioned they would refer this issue back to TDC. I believe the pin placement on the map is accurate, about 2/3 way down the road from Wairakei drive to Contact Energy and Groundworks.
  • Grassed berm 2 update
    The neighbours at the opposite buinesses/houses park on the grass outside 150 Heuheu Street, the are is worn and scruffy. Is there any thning that can be done to tidy the grassed area or stop cars parking on this berm? thanks
  • Car park between BP and Caltex - gutters need cleaning3 update
    The park between the two petrol stations needs tidying, the car park nearest Caltex needs the kerb channel cleaned at the Heuheu Street end, it overflows onto the footpath when it rains, leaves etc have blocked the guttering. The leaves at the end by the RSA are also blocking the drain and the area is very s;ippery with wet leaves. Thanks you from all those that use the car park
  • trucks turning and ripping up road2 update
    often stock trucks are unaware of the turning bay further down the road and do U-turns on the corner by 465 Arataki Rd. Central Transport Ltd did so last week in the wet and dug up the surface. A sign notifying drivers of the turn around bay would surely stop this problem from regular occurance.
  • Street light at the end of Marotoa grove4 update
    Has not been going for the last 2 weeks and makes our street very dark. Its the one in the cul-de-sac

Old fixed

  • Not Going3 update
    Light is by #18 Topia Drive. This is not the light opposite # 17 but the next one along. It has not been working for at least a month
  • Give way sign2 update
    The give way sign on the corner of Jarden Mile and Marabou crescent has been blown around (90 degrees) by wind. It needs to be positioned correctly and tightened
  • Top Car park severe potholes3 update
    The top car park at the BMX jump area is a terrible mess. It's almost impossible to enter at present because the HUGE potholes at the entrance and more large holes in the parking area. It's a huge mess! Nothing has been done to maintain this area for months! Please can you grade it or at least put a load of metal in the entrance to fill the terrible holes. Someone from Council needs to go and have a look as what we have to negotiate on each visit. Not a good look for visitors either. If there is a plan for this area, then please publish it in the Taupo Times so we all know we are not forgotten. Thank you.
  • 80 kph / 50 kph Sign down2 update
    The speed sign has been down over a week with TDC staff obliviously driving by it walking near it each day. The speed limit in Turangi is currently 80 kph as there is no retriction when entering Turangi to advise it has dropped to 50 kph once leaving SH1. Sign is lying near the underpass, near Burger King.
  • Kohineheke Crescent Reserve Fly Tipping2 update
    Left of the entrance road to the river, at the grass edge with the blackberry - a number of trampoline frame pipes parts and litter have been dumped. Also if you head along to the left (at the north west corner) building debris, plaster wallboard and timber framing has been dumped over the bank.
  • washout on grass road edge2 update
    grass verge has been undercut by a washout, also a green plastic pipe has been exposed
  • River Road Hall rubbish bin2 update
    The River Road Hall rubbish bin has not been emptied for at least 2 months. There is rubbish overflowing. Meanwhile there have been several TDC vehicles out this way. Has no-one from council reported this?
  • Condition of the berms outside the Richmond Heights Shopping Centre4 update
    Outside the shopping centre on the berms of both Richmond Avenue and St James Streets where fibre cable was laid under the ground by Chorus the grass area was never returned to it's original condition in the area between the footpath and the road. It is now just a pot holed dust bowl and a hazard from a Health and Safety perspective. It needs to be filled and leveled and regrassed to improve its overall appearance and safety.
  • Grass berm2 update
    The grass berm by the concrete vehicle crossing in front of 56 Pihanga Street needs more soil to fill the edge up to concrete. This can be quite hazardous and hard on car tyres when turning in to the driveway.
  • Kopu St Tokaanu St Name Plate Sign 2 update
    The Kopu Street Name plate sign (at SH 41 intersection) is hanging by its bottom fastening and the top fastening needs repair before the sign plate is damaged.
  • Road narrowing by grass and slips2 update
    Along Pokuru road Nth there the grass is growing along the road side and is narrowing the road from it;s original width. Also there are a number of slips and bushes which have fallen which are further the road. The road is currently used by a number of logging truck.
  • Turangi RTS Green waste area Mess2 update
    Turangi RTS Green waste disposal area. I have complained a few times on this same issue and now have to do it again. I have visited the Turangi RTS area a number of times dumping leaves from Council trees over the past weeks. I dread going there, finding the area a boggy mess, and getting mud all over my car and boots trying to dump there. The area is disgusting. Council staff overseeing the management of this contract must take the responsibility - or is this what your intended outcome is? Every year winter comes. Every year, for the last 3 years, the area is not prepared for the influx of green waste and leaves being dumped over Autumn. It has poor drainage. Every year the same - TDC say "we will speak to the contractor" but still a substandard outcome. We know winter comes this time of the year; we know it rains and we know that water does not run off an area shaped to contain and puddle water. And yet we find the area is now such that you cannot avoid the mud and slush and puddles and it has restricted area making it difficult to manoeuvre a car and trailer on it clear of the pools of water and slush. I hate having to complain but it seems TDC does little unless a complaint is received. Please cleanup the RTS green waste area. Fill in and build up the area so vehicles have a good sized area to move on; build it of good compacted pumice; shape it so it is elevated above the greenwaste dump area so that runoff is away from the vehicle area and drainage from the green waste is not onto the pad. If TDC staff don't know what to do, then employ a contactor who does. For years Kernohan Contractors achieved this for TDC. We know it can be done because it used to be done.
  • Uneven surface2 update
    Th road between 1139 Poihipi road and 1171 Poihipi road has some huge bumps and judders in it I am worried a vehicle will loose control. I feel it needs to be resurfaced
  • Road needs resurfacing4 update
    Section of Poihipi Road just after junction with Thermal Explorer highway needs resurfacing - there are a series of rough bumps on both sies of the road
  • Dangerous slip on Pukawa rd3 update
    Pukawa Rd has been in a dangerous condition for several weeks. If the dropout develops further the whole settlement will be cut off completely for months.Is there any plan yet for a permanent repair? Regards Geoff Stent
  • Hole in road4 update
    There is a slump in the road on lower Heathcote Street and it rocks my car when I drive over it. When truck drive over it they make a big bang!
  • Light not working3 update
    Street light has not been working for more than a week
  • Street light opposite 5 Kempton Place 3 update
    This light goes on for a while at normal intensity, then fades to a pale glow, then back to normal. When it dims, most of the street is in darkness, which is a security issue.
  • Flickering/broken street lamp3 update
    The street lamp outside no.16 is flickering or off completely. Has been like this for approx3 weeks.
  • boat on berm5 update
    An old boat has been parked on berm at 9 Muritai St for over 2 months it is only on one tyre Is an eyesore plus dangerous to children playing in street We request to remain anonymous as we reside in the street
  • No street lights2 update
    Hi there, I have a request for street lighting on our street Bracken Row as it ceases to exist. This would make it safer for our children to play & also for our neighbours to see who is coming & going up & down our lovely street. Thank you Oriana Paul
  • Footpath Trip Hazard4 update
    The footpath along side the Info Centre has bad trip hazards
  • Hedge over footpath12 update

  • Rats3 update
    In the CBD on the weekend 11pm Saw Rats in three locations on the street- Near Pac n Save and Heuheu street Not at all frighten by traffic around them. Not a good look for our town I had out of town visitor with me. Maybe not the site to report this but needs addressing.
  • Footpath is obstructed by trees7 update
    The footpath between 16 & 18 Brunette Drive is obstructed by vegetation which needs pruning.
  • Grass needs cutting on walkway3 update
    On the walkway between Birch Street and Napier Road
  • Excessive amount of gravel at road edge3 update
    After road resealing recently, there is an excessive amount of gravel/chip on the road edge at the approach to Wairakei Bridge when heading to Taupo. The gravel is about 15m x 0.5m and 5-10cm deep. I think this is a significant risk to cyclists using this route. That is, a risk for cyclists to lose control on loose gravel on a busy road with speed limit of 100km/h. Can you please arrange for the gravel to be removed?
  • Congested car parking 5 update
    Posties are concerned that when cycling back to branch in the afternoon the Totara Street is too narrow to maneuver through as cars are parking on both sides of the road giving them limited room and space to cycle safely back to the branch at 27 Totara Street. Suggestion is that yellow lines be put in place on one side or both sides of Totara Street reducing the risk of them being knocked off their cycles or being clipped by vehicles driving through the street. This is also a problem for thorough fare traffic as well, street too narrow for dual parking
  • Pukawa Bay Boat Ramp road4 update
    The road leading to the Pukawa boat ramp is terribly uneven, the tarseal is all wavy and causing issues for boats jumping off trailers if going to fast along there and unable to see the poor condition of the road to the boat ramp so can't tell to slow down. Please fix our road to the boat ramp! This is becoming a health and safety issue.
  • Poor road condition / erosion4 update
    Please be advised that there is serious erosion of the road and massive potholes that requires repair as the poor road condition is potentially going to damage vehicles and result in storm drain subsidence if left unattended outside 17 Mamaku Street, Taupo
  • Marotiri Road sign3 update
    Marotiri Road sign has been levelled & is lying on the side of the road by the corner of Tihoi Rd & Marotiri Road
  • 40 k school zone and a under ground tunnel for children to cross under3 update
    I would like to know why their is no 40km school Zone at our local school and why we have not had a overbridge made or A tunnel for the children to cross under or over as the road is super busy
  • Potholes4 update
    The gravel road/track running along the lake front and beside the golf course is terrible and has been for sometime - potholes etc. Will this be graded or pot holes repaired soon? Is there anything in the long term plan to have it sealed?
  • Seriously overgrown trees12 update
    Trees growing over powerlines and out onto road. Hard to see traffic coming when backing out onto road, completely covering powerlines.
  • Information Centre2 update
    It is a shame, a blot on the Turangi area that TDC in Turangi have two portaloos on the Ngawaka Reserve that are to serve the public users of the Information Centre. Can you believe it, that a major front to Turangi is greeted by this eyesore? It is also probably a breach of the building code for the information centre, and of the reserve management plan for the Ngawaka Place reserve - I request that this complaint also be referred to the TDC regulatory divisions for building compliance and reserve management in that respect. TDC have just allocated $100,000 to Ruapehu Ski field - yet neglects to find funding for the toilet maintenance at the Tgi Info Centre and in so doing is negligent of its priority Annual Plan commitments and responsibilities by neglecting the upkeep of key facilities in Turangi. Shame on you all. It reflects badly on the town as a tourist destination, also on Council, its management and staff - as though they don't care for Turangi long term. PS don't say it is too hard to fix, too expensive, it needs a whole new building or any other excuse you may have told the info centre staff, public and it seems the TTCB - that is a fallacy. it can be fixed, should be fixed and must be fixed, and TDC have funds - be they reserve funds, operational or depreciation funds. To continue to allow this appears to me to be a breach of TDC legal responsibilities.

  • Road Maintenance - 81 Bush Rd Whakamaru2 update
    Please note: Road access of 81 Bush rd is continually an issue for my vehicle. The road is gravel always in rutted condition, visual issues occur due to grade & regular large vehicles accessing the property creates danger visual areas on roadsides. Road drainage is nil, I transport international guests & children on this roadway and am annoyed of the nil attention provided for at least a safe level access to the property. Also copied from your web page- please edit your sentencing!! Issues in this area .... If you all you see is blue, zoom out using the map controls... 'You' is used twice, correct your sentence structure!! Regards, M Couch

  • Traffic light phasing3 update
    I recently had visitors in town who were surprised to see how long the phases of the Tongariro Street traffic lights were taking. Can someone have a look into this and see if the setting can be tweaked. Traffic was sitting for a long time and no vehicles were coming from the other direction.
  • Overhanging tree10 update
    Tree on Cnr of 90 Richmond Ave and 1a Marshall Ave requires trimming overhanging the footpath

  • Repair of cutting across the seal on Mapara Road3 update
    For the last week or so there has been a wide cutting across Mapara Road - presumably to do with the work on the water supply. Please advise when it will be resealed - that gravel filling dissipates with the result that even at less than 50kph, the cars are subjected to a very large jolt - not at all good for the wheel alignment of the cars!!!
  • Ped Safety Island signs damaged3 update
    Two steel supports for marker on the pedestrian crossing safety island opposite the Tongariro School entrance - near Hinerangi St cnr have been hit this morning at about 7am and sheared off and the steel pieces are laying on the road side
  • Test from TDC4 update
    This is a test from Fixmystreet from Travis
  • Large grass berms3 update
    Hi - the berms along the bottom section of Waikato St need attention. There are a lot of minor issues along the street, but the one outside my friends house is particularly bad. There are a lot of gravel stones coming out of driveways and onto the footpath and driveways, making walking hazardous - I have witnessed a young Mum pushing a pram and with a toddler in tow, slip over on the gravel recently, I've seen kids slip on bikes,and I've slipped myself, but didn't actually fall. The grass berm itself is in bad shape. I recently mowed the berms for my friend (who is on an invalids benefit and can't do it herself) and the berm is more dirt and dust and lumps than grass. It's getting a bit dangerous to mow with all the dirt lumps sticking up, and huge 'dents', where people have obviously missed the driveway and driven over the grass to enter or exit. She's happy to look after the berm (as in mowing and watering) but it need smoothing out and re-sowing to be less hazardous.
  • Fire Hydrant Leaking2 update

  • All the street lights are out2 update
    All the streeet lights are out Fo Motutahae St
  • dog poop bags3 update
    There is one roll of dog poop bags provided at the marked spot on the map. Unfortunately, this is not nearly enough for this area. This has to be the most popular dog exercising area in Taupo, and the provision of just ONE roll of bags is totally insufficient. I walk my dog there every day, and often see this dispenser empty. Over the Christmas holiday week, it was bedlam there with all the visiting dogs using the park. Unfortunately, the bag dispenser was empty!! consequently I saw a lot of dogs fouling, and the owners just had to walk away and leave it. Yuk! I suggest another dispenser be attached to the existing post so that there is always at least one roll with some bags on it. Also, another dispenser should be put down at the main carpark near the bins because a lot of dog walkers go there. There is an awesome dog water bowl provided, so why not also provide a bag dispenser. It makes great sense to me. thank you, Kath Keeley.
  • Slippery and overgrown with moos3 update
    When it's wet, it's very slippery! I have had one fall a;ready. A second will not be better! I have complaint before about it, and nothing got done! Please remove all the moos and clean all footpath in Pukawa!
  • Street name sign pinched2 update

  • Weeds and debris on road and bank.3 update
    Please, could the edge of the road opposite 53 Hauraki Terrace be cleared? Rotting leaves and masses of large weeds, including scotch thistles and buddleia, are encroaching on to the road and spreading up the crumbling bank. Thank you!
  • Overgrown hedging blocking footpath6 update
    Overgrown hedging from neighbouring property is blocking pathway.
  • 4 potholes in the middle of the road2 update

  • Require more lighting & speed humps3 update
    This street is a hot spot for gangs, crime and general mayhem. We need lighting on both sides of the street and speed humps to slow the traffic down. The area has many young children who are at risk.
  • No signs2 update

  • Water leak in street2 update

  • Hirangi Rd side drain4 update
    One of the property entry culverts appears blocked and water upstream os banked back up
  • Tongariro St / Spa Road Roundabout Road Markings6 update
    The road markings on the Tongariro street / Spa Road roundabout are in very poor condition. Given that this is an unusual roundabout (partly two lane and partly single lane), that Taupo is a "tourist town" and that the roundabout has no signage these road markings are important. Present markings are a mix of current worn-out markings and old, different markings showing through; all very confusing.
  • Streetlight Not Operating3 update
    Streetlight outside 16 Lakewood Drive not operating, has been out for some time.
  • street light not working3 update
    street light was not working when I was up there a week ago
  • Street light not working3 update

  • sewage smell from connection2 update
    First noticed this while out walking a few weeks ago, but my apologies I would forget to write when I got home. The new sewage connection that has been connected for the settlement further down the lake must be leaking or something. Every time we walk by it absolutely reaks of sewage, how large of an area that smells depends on the wind. Sometimes it is just right around the walkway going past it, sometimes it would be roughly two or three sections that smell & also out on Victory Drive. We walk by there pretty much every day and it smells to some degree every single time.
  • Taupo View Lookout and reserve on the corner of Huka Falls Rd and Wairakei Drive (formerly SH1), picnic table5 update
    There is a wooden picnic table with attached seating next to Huka Falls Rd on the above mentioned reserve. This table is in a position where it NEVER gets used. Could it not be put to use and enjoyed in a different location? Perhaps near the gate into Control Gates Reserve? Or ????

    HirangibRoad on the last bend bfore SH 41. The culvert pipe under the road on the south side the end pipe has dropped down and come out of the collar of the adjoin pipe.

  • Pot holes in Service Lane4 update
    There are major pot holes growing in Service Lane 4 on the corner behind the BNZ. This is being caused be the heavy trucks that continually use the service lane.
  • Rubbish being dumped near Telephone exchange2 update
    I have previously complained on 14/8/2016 that rubbish in being dumped in the area adjacent to the coms shed by a vehicle towing a trailer with the number plate 4U686.Since then more rubbish has been dump in this general area. This will in the end become a health hazard. To prevent this area from becoming an unofficial dumping ground a clean-up will be required and some fencing measure apply e.g. like the fence erected adjacent to the redoubt area that prevents freedom campers from messing up this historic place.
  • Stormwater Catch Pit Waipapa Reserve2 update
    There is a concrete stormwater catch pit on Waipapa Reserve, off SH 1 Turangi about 20m west of the coffee cart, and beside the footpath running to Waipapa St. The concrete lid has been slid off and needs lifting back on. The catch pit appears to be full of leaves.

  • Slippery footpath and moss3 update
    The steep walkway that links Omori Road to the little reserve between Kaimanawa and Koromiko Place is very slippery. During school holidays we have observed people having difficulties getting up and down the path because its very slippery, especially when wet. Please remove the moss and maybe cut trees down so moss doesn't grow back so easily.

  • Control Gates Hill, Wairakei Drive, Taupo4 update
    Now that the above mentioned road is under the control of Taupo District Council could we please have some street lighting for the footpath? Currently there is no lighting from Norman Smith St intersection to Huka Falls Rd intersection. Not pleasant for pedestrians!
  • Hitch Hiking on Control Gates Hill, Wairakei Drive (highway)2 update
    Too often I see people trying to hitch a ride on the above mentioned piece of road (uphill, heading north out of town). From the Norman Smith St intersection until after the Huka Falls Rd intersection the west side of the highway is only 2 lanes wide with no opportunity for vehicles to stop. Surely there should be NO STOPPING lines there. There should also be signs advising hitch hikers that hitching is NOT PERMITTED on that section of road.
  • Inoperative street light4 update
    Intersection of Gillies ave and Hinekura ave southern side. This is a bad intersection at the best of times but the lack of lighting that is on this corner is making it worse

    Please there is a pothole that is progressively getting worse outside our gateway on road. This is a busy Rd an the when it rains water runs across from opposite side of road. Heavy trucks who use this daily are hitting the pothole spraying debri onto footpath and into our driveway. When trucks hit it they also shake the house and it's noisey. A patch appears to have been already done at some stage. Thankyou
  • No road markings to indicate a pedistrian crossing5 update
    On lower Spa Rd, Taupo, opposite Countdown there is a centre stopping point for pedestrians to stop on to cross Spa Road. I nearly run down a pedestrian, because the right hand lane traffic had come to a stop, but the left lane traffic I was travelling in was still flowing. Because I was still able to drive to the flow of traffic I did, but then the pedestrian walked straight out into my lane because the right lane traffic had come to a stop. He clearly thought it was safe to cross!!! I had to slam on my brakes to avoid running him down. I was also driving approximately 30k as it was a busy time and area and living in Taupo I know to be careful. I strongly believe there should be a pained white lined pedestrian crossing or at least some signage/flashing lights to alert the pedestrians and drivers to wait to all traffic flow has come to a stop or is clear to cross. I hope this issue could be brought to the TDC as quickly as possible as I think this is a very dangerous issue. Many thanks, Lisa.

    The posts/chain in the photo are supposed stop vehicles from gaining access to a public footpath from Cheery Lane to Acacia Heights Drive. But they are not effective, as they can simply be lifted out.

Do something about it please.
  • Unlocked entrance allowing dangerous joyriders3 update
    The Public walkway between Cherry Lane and Acacia Heights Drive was recently mowed, but the chain/lock was not replaced and locked at the Cherry Lane end. On Saturday night a vehicle full of shouting hoons stormed up and down the complete path from Cherry Lane to the very top at Acacia Heights Drive. There are deep tyre gouges to prove this If anyone was walking along the path, they would have not stood a chance as the high section is a narrow path with no way to dive out of the way. Apart from extreme danger, there is also the risk of Town Water Infrastructure damage adjacent to the water tower should the vehicle get out of control on the very steep driveway. The current chain and posts, even when locked, are inadequate, as the posts are occasionally simply lifted out. Please re-lock ASAP, and strengthen the posts with concrete so that they are not lifted out of the way by any young drunks who feel they want a “hill challenge” driving to the top.
  • Watertoby outside Turangi Aquatic Centre reported 10 Nov 20157 update
    Water Valve Box left a hazard dangerous - near Aquatic Centre Turangi This valve box near the Tgi Aquatic Centre remains in a substandard state. It is located near the Playground-skatepark regularly has the lid off it. The reason is that the contractor who installed it did a substandard job. The sleeve to the valve stem is too long and so the lid won't fit on properly. The box needs the white pipe liner sleeve reduced in length, and the whole box reset so its blue lid is left flush with the grass level so mowers won't hit it or the public trip on it. Ill sent photos to TDC on 10 Nov 2015 via their info email service

    2 Trees were moved by the Council early last year, however the Council never came back to remove the stumps or to level off the ground and resow the grass. The rest of the Council grass verge in the street is okay. When the Council cut the trees down in Ward Crescent they did an excellent job and even replanted...they certainly didn't do this in Grace Crescent.

  • existing planting on the median islands4 update
    The current style of planting on the length of TONGARIRO STREET obscures any pedestrians crossing the traffic lanes, particularly near the information centre. Cars are directed very close to this island(by way of the right turning lane into Story Place) so have little chance of avoiding someone who may suddenly step out. I feel that this whole centre island would be safer for all parties if it was completely cleared and would greatly improve visibility. Please view this current situation at 'child level' to guage the risk to our smaller residents/visitors. Note that not all vehicles have elevated drivers seating. ie SUVs etc. ps the street corner reconstruction is a great improvement. Thank you .

  • 2 Tree stumps on Council grass in front of 71 & 73 Grace Cresc.1 update
    Council removed 2 large oak trees a few months back in front of the above properties but never came back to remove the stumps. The dirt/grass around the stumps needs to be spread out as well and 'evend off' and grass seed sown. It looks unsightly as the rest of the grass verge in the street is so neat and tidy.

  • Poor road drainage causing flooding problem6 update
    I have worked hard to try to maintain the area in the attached photo but find it impossible due to poor road drainage flooding the area. This is next to an area that is used as the local school bus stop. Who drives through here?: 1. The rural delivery contractor (daily). 2. Parents parking up to pick-up/drop-off children on the school buses. 3. Anyone who wants to turn around (including trucks) - there are not many places wide enough to u-turn on this road. 4. Supporters parking up for the many events that run through here. 5. NOT ME. This is public land and is a public amenity (road and bus stop), it just happens to be outside my property. I do my best as a good citizen to maintain this (mow grass, clear rubbish etc.) I do not have the mandate or the resources to deal with this problem properly. I have spoken to TDC previously about this problem but the response has been unsatisfactory (flippant response/not treated seriously). I am now under threat of mail delivery suspension. Could TDC please address this problem.

    I think it is time to completely redo the Acacia Bay straight footpath, it is used frequently and compared to other cycleways a lot more than others, it is very rough to ride bikes on, therefore some bikes ride on the road, which really is not wide enough for them.

I hope you are able to keep us up to date on how the plan to remove them is progressing

  • Dangerous road surface2 update
    The condition of the road surface on Poihipi road has become dangerous. There are many large bumps and depressions that have caused two accidents that I know of and who knows how many near misses. The main area is from 1500m west of CONTROL GATES INTERSECTION, to 1000m west of TUKAIRANGI ROAD. One very harsh bump i believe was also the cause for a trailer axle spring breaking which nearly threw me across the centre line into oncoming traffic. Please repair this road as it is no longer just a back road, but a main arterial route for many. Thank you

  • 50mmx50mm Tree stakes3 update
    Wharewaka Subdivision berm Cherry trees are now well established. The point being Tree Stakes are no longer supporting cherry trees so as the stakes are in perfect condition they could be removed and reused. There are likely a couple of hundred or more with a probable new cost in excess of $5 each. These stake could be cleared easily in a day. I would be happy to do this task and return to Council for reuse.

  • Tokaanu Sewer Pressure Main SH 412 update
    Tokaanu Sewer Maintenance URGENT Along SH 41 Tokaanu, 150m south of the SH41/Atutahi St intersection, a hole has appeared filled with dark smelly water. The location is between Eddie Kumeroa,s house and the intersection, on the Tokaanu village side of the highway. In a previous life I was manager of that sewer system. I suspect that the Taokaanu Main Pressure sewer main has developed a leak in the AC pipe and intermittently as the main Tokaanu pump station pumps wastewater towards Turangi - raw wastewater from the pipe has blown a hole to the ground surface and is entering the adjacent wetland. It needs urgent check out, to at least eliminate that this is, or is not, the cause. It’s been there approx a week now.

    The overhanging trees along Hauraki Tce Pukawa Bay need cutting back as there will soon be many boats and trailers unable to keep to the left causing problems with oncoming traffic.

    Street lighting is not working
  • Pedestrian traffic5 update
    The section of road between the Huka Falls Resort and Reids Farm has a lot of foot and cycle traffic and no footpath to allow walkers to stay safely off the road. Not only this, there is a need for beautification with appropriate plantings along this stretch of road. There is also a need for weed control, particularly in the block of land opposite the entrance to Clearwater Lane. Broom and gorse are notifiable weeds but are uncontrolled here. They spread rapidly and a blot on an otherwise attractive landscape.

  • Motutere Bay not fixed 3 update
    The southern most end of the Motutere Bay Recreation Reserve where it meets the DoC Mission Bay Reserve, is an area in TDC management. Last year it was left unmown and gorse and weeds have regenerate on embankment opp. Mission Bay Rd to the south end. Up to 2011 TDC progressively brought this area of weed infested embankment into an easily managed state, It started progressively replanting it. Using donated funds by an estate beneficiary a track was established along it and a memorial seat placed on it. The area was left unkempt last year, weeds are becoming established, gorse broom and other weeds now returning. It's a shame to see progressive betterments of an area being neglected. At the least the area could be mowed regularly. The area was even mowed easily once a year - embankment and all by a large tractor with good wide wheels - he just drove it sideways along the embankment slope - took less than 30 min to do. Jamie Gainsford knows the area and how it was maintained. Yu haven't done anything and more than that you refuse to communicate on it truthfully or to the complainant. Its bad service and management

Please clarify this. P. I'm sure bollards and rocks everywhere was NOT in the plan.

    Rainbow Point residents are sick of the numerous rabbits throughout the residential area. While control on reserves is one thing this just means the smart rabbits relocate to the residential area making real pets of themselves.

When raining, a very large pond is created outside 12 Ogilive Road. The pond covers about a third of the road and can cause the car to nearly hydroplane in these conditions. Secondly, the Alley way beside No 12 that goes through to Nisbet Tce is in a very bad condition. Then walking through it is very rough and possibly the worst alley way in Kinloch and certailnly not up to the standard of the alley way opposite from Nisbet Tce to the reserve.

    The verge outside the property of 39 Brice Street needs repairing. It was once used as a car park for the church across the street which was the Jehovahs Witness church which has now moved to Kiddle Drive. The current owner is now the Taupo Samoan assembly of god. The condition of the verge is a mixture of metal and pumice. It becomes a dust bowl during the dry season and is hazardous to children who have asthma and allegies. My husband is an amputee, incomplete paraplegic so it falls upon my shoulders to try to fix this eye sore. We don't mind if it is still used for a car park for the church but would like the council to help out with its repair whether it be cobbles or grass. I have already sprayed the area for weeds and have started repair work on the remaining grass but we need help. Thank you our neighbourhood appreciates your support. This issue has not been fixed.

    I refer to the area on the true left of the Waikato River immediately downstream of the Control Gates Bridge, Taupo. I understand that this area is owned by Mighty River Power and administered by Taupo District Council.

Last year there was work done on the riverbank in the area near the drive-in entrance. The signs were removed and not replaced. Could they please be replaced? There is a board fence there which would be ideal to place them on.

  • Rubbish bin on a carpark2 update
    Waipunga Falls view point is a very popular placemark for tourists and locals. I've been there 3 times in last 2 years (I live in Auckland), and last time I've counted 5 cars on carpark in 20 minutes (Sept 8, 2103) as it is a nice spot to have a rest, have lunch and just enjoy a view of the beautiful waterfall. I believe in tourist season there are much more visitors. But in addition to a great waterfall they can observe litter on the carpark and area around. One of the reasons for it I believe is a missing rubbish bin. I realise that it seem to be a private land and it is probably hard to serve a rubbish been there, but New Zealand is a tourists oriented country, and it is a shame to not maintain such a great placemark. If you need few more photos of rubbish (or waterfall) there don't hesitate to contact me. Thank you.
  • Edge brak pothole Matariki St, Tokaanu2 update
    Opposite 449 Matariki St, on Nth side of Matariki Sr, an edge break pothole has extended into the sealed carriage way.
  • Berm- Vehicle Apron subsidence2 update
    There is a broken section of the vehicle apron that requires attention to make it safe. It appears to be because of consolidation settlement of the sewer main beneath the apron. A number of years ago [in early 1990's] the TDC placed the Maratoa relief sewer along Hirangi Road and parts of the line backfill settled over time. This appears to have happened beneath this section of the vehicle apron and now it has broken because of lack of subsoil supporting. It may be prudent to check the sewer main itself to see if there is any ingress into the pipe and that water from the surface has not found a way into the sewer main and eroded soil into the pipe. Some backfill is needed to immediately to make the berm area safe.
  • HEALTH and SAFETY issue- A big pile of long Pine logs in the front yard of a house next to the footpath3 update
    Around 81 Grace Crescent, Richmond Heights, someone has dumped a large pile of pine logs. They appear to be a high risk for an accident should someone climb onto them. It is the size of a pile you would expect to see in a yard in the industrial area. Please check this out. The person responsible is also creating a noise nuisance as he chainsaws and chops these logs. Check it out please.

  • Vaucluse Reserve/Clean up the Cycle area Treeplanting3 update
    5 years ago I asked about looking at the trees in our street. The one outside N01 has died.The autumn is a good time to replace it. The trees in Vaulcluse Resereve have never had an atom of attention since I`ve been here .The mower knock the stakes out and thats that.They are in need of some support. The grass is growing over the path and gorse on the boundary. The area round the BICYCLE is a mess and needs a rubbish bin installed.Rails are missing are down around the trees there.This is supposed to showcase Taupo. The entrance to Poihi Rd needs a good clean up as the mowing men just mow over the paper and rubbish. That will be enough to go on with.Over to you a good spruce up is required.

    Every year a large tree on the Reserve across from me (I think its called Laughton Reserve???) losses its leaves and they end up in bulk in my section and just out on the road/footpath. This area is renowned for flooding and I would like these removed so that drains are not blocked and the streets/my front yard is tidied Also - the water pressure from my shower and the flat downstairs seems to have reduced significantly over the past 3-4 weeks (maybe longer?).

    The roadside storm water grates along lake terrace are very recessed (I'm assuming from a lot of re-sealing of the road over the years) and they are not very visible to cyclists creating many hazards along this stretch of road.

  • Road shoulder deteriorating after road works.3 update
    In a past district plan, the road shoulder was intended to be widened to a minimum of 1.5 metres during road works to make it safer for cyclists. Recent road maintenance has had the opposite effect and now the road, as well as having the old pinch points on corners and bridges (sometimes combined) has, in places, a shoulder with fresh loose gravel, rumble strips that have been painted several times next to each other, uneven pavement on what used to be a smooth shoulder and on occasion large blobs of paint forcing cyclists into the traffic stream. The rumble strips are also sometimes painted where they are both not needed (next to a barrier) and where they take up what little shoulder there is which also forces cyclists into the traffic stream. Basically, instead of the road getting safer for cyclists after road works, it's getting worse.

  • Abandoned building and trees/garden in reserve.18 update
    There is an abandonded building in the reserve. Over the last 5 years it has been more and more vandalised. Windows are broken, graffiti inside, building rotting out and smashed walls. It attracts a criminal element. The trees and what was a garden around it have grown out of control and are full of blackberry. I beleive the building was once a womens tennis club. It would make the park safer and more usable if this whole area was returned to a mowable grassed area.

Almost directly opposite this sign at the top of the bank on the other side of the road is a douglas fir tree that has had most the soil around its roots eroded and looks like it could slip down the bank and onto the road after more heavy rain. Thank you.

    The house at 11 Tanekaha Tce (white house next to alleyway) has water constantly running. It's possible vandals have been in and stolen the hot water cylinder and just cut the pipes. Seems a waste to let that water just run away.

  • Leaves from Oak trees in Ward place5 update
    Could someone please come and remove the fallen leaves from the (unwanted by all up this street)Oak trees. They are blocking the storm drains. I also object to having to clean up these leaves every couple of days and then have to PAY to take them to the dump. I have heard the Turangi residents don't pay to get theirs removed. We have repeatedly asked the council to remove these trees... not only are we paying to remove the leaves, the roots are lifting the footpaths up in many places, which is very dangerous.

    Town Centre near Soyutj entrace a tree needs trimming lifting to provide better visibility of pedetrians by cars. Today I saw someome obscured by the tree and the car could not see them nor could they see the car because the branches are leafey and hangingmlow - a trim up of them to lift them would solve the issue.

  • Town Centre Garden Plot Ohuanga Rd8 update
    The corner of one of the entrance garden plots is damaged. What is most disspointing is the lack of proactivity and inaiative by TDC staff to make this safe through the day - ie. by removing damaged blocks, or screening off. Not good enogh and safety of public as well as general appearance to town cetnre left like this all day. The Town Centre cleaner should have seen it early in the day and if he was in the area, and he was nearby at 3:30pm when I saw it but no one did a thing!

    The wire netting sign advertising upcoming events is well past it's useby date and has been in a bad state of repair for some time. Surely Taupo can do much better than this.
  • Ohuanga Rd Town Centre Carpark Gardens3 update
    There are two garden plots unplanted and weed infested for a year now. I see complaints in the Turangi Chronicle - of falling standards and with this lack of performance they are jutified. Gareth Green's answer was unbelievable, staff have been on and you have had time. TDC now have no qualified horticulture staff based in the Turangi staff where they can observe and remedy garden issues and current staff are sicere but untrained eg. can't recognise plant health problems and but that was the current managements choice with the most qualified staff member now driving mower tractors. It's sad to see the 25 years begun by Graham Pilet's forsight to employ qualified gardeners and to have made significant progress over the years in the town amenity horticulture and landscapes and now to see it slowly but surely regressing.
  • Rubbish dumped in reserve2 update
    Not for the first time, a pile of junk rubbish has been dumped on the reserve area at the parking and turn around at the Southern end of Wharewaka road. The Council have always been very good at cleaning it up on previous occasions. It appears as though this is a repeat offender !

    Tree needs lifting - in wet weather it droops down and obscures pedestrains crossing toward Town Centre - I have already reported this once after seeing a near miss - a trim of lower branches is all that is required.
  • Trees10 update
    Hi, These trees have been an ongoing issue for many years. There are a row of trees beside paerata road from the intersection of Tirohanga road up paerata road for about two km. Every time there is a storm many branches fall onto the road and somtimes the top of a tree would blow out across the road and has to be removed by a tractor. Last year one completly blocked the road and landed across the oppsite fence. I have rang Council three times regarding this issue over the last few months and been assured I will be contacted by the relevent person but still waiting. Please give this your attention as these trees are over 50 years old and are becomming dangrous. Kind regarde David Treloar

  • Bad road5 update
    Can we please have this road fixed! There aren't pot holes as such but the road is very badly uneven and dangerous. It collects a lot of water even after just a shower. The worst part is from the Poihipi Rd end and continues for about 2km. Is it possible to have a bridal path along it also as there are a lot of horses riding on the road and it is a very narrow road and it's only a matter of time before a stock truck has a head on with a child on their pony. We have a number of stock trucks on the road weekly.

  • Fire Hazard Property3 update
    I was appraoched re the ex-Turangi Primary School site that has now got long dry grass on it. I referred the enquired to make complaint to TDC - but for the record it is poor that this property is being allowed to have such rank vegetation and could endanger many adjoining properties if fire catches hold of the grass.
  • Footpath Encroachment4 update
    The vegetation from 202 Tautahanga Rd, Turangi has overgrown the footpath to the point where pedestrians are now wearing a track on the grasss berm to get past it. 202 Tautahanga Rd, I have reported this once and not attended to yet. I'm dispointed at level of service.
  • Stones from burst water pipe2 update
    Hi just wondering how long it will be before all the stones that were washed down from the burst water pipe on Cumberland Street on Tuesday will be removed.

  • Ohuanga Rd - sth side Carpark berms 2 update
    February 2011 two berm areas had plants removed but have never been reinstated with grass or plantings and remain a weed infested eyesore on one of the most public areas. Other side gardens need a good weed, and the fences with 15minmaintnace with a hammer and nails to reinstate the knocked off pailings would held the area at least look as though someomne cared.
  • Business car parking4 update
    Tuwharetoa Street between Kaimanawa Streets and Titraupenga Streets is getting dangerous for traffic passing through. Several accidents/near misses due to cars parking both sides of road narrowing road for passing vehicles. Is hard to see oncoming traffic when pulling out of driveways. Staff and customers of accounting business at #109 Tuwharetoa St etc appear to be the main culprits (insufficent parking for their clients and staff as the same vehicles are often parked there all day during weekdays). Delivery vehicles/buses/trucks struggle to pass also.

  • Stornwater Cess Pit Lid 2 update
    Waipapa Reserve - Millennium Walkway area just east of the Kaheke Place Baden Powell Hall- there is a stormwater cess pit grate that is being removed and dropped into the cess pit. Twice now in the last month and a half I have found the CI grate dropped into the cess pit and pulled it out and replaced it on the frames so the cess pit is safe. Left off someone could trip/fall into it. It may be that the lid needs securing on - it seems someone is periodically lifting it off and dropping it in.
  • Berm - blackberry and dead trees5 update

  • Inappropriate tree on berm3 update
    The current tree (or shrub) is unattractive and also a hazard for any driver pulling onto Tautahanga Road from 190. I would like permission to remove it and dump it free of charge and replace with another specimen. Thinking more of a tree rather than shrub.
  • Almost dead flowering cherry3 update
    The flowering cherry tree outside the section at 188 Tautahanga Road is mostly dead and could be a hazard as this is the second summer that it has been like it
  • Sewer Manhole5 update
    On the opposite side of Tautahanga Rd from 180 & 182 Tautahanga Rd is a sewer manhole that is progressively being buried under vegetation waste being dumped on top of it. The MH is on the main trunk sewer main and would be prudent and part of preventitive maintenance to keep it cleared. I belive the vegetation os probably being dumped from properies on the oppoite side of the road as the are where the MH is located is fenced but in an undeveloped state with blackeberry etc.

  • Slippery chamber cover11 update
    On the evening of saturday 18/06/11, I, along with friends, were walking south along Tongariro St, just before the traffic lights, when one of the females in our group slipped backwood on one of the two chamber covers due to the cover being so very slippery. I too nearly toppled when I slipped on the lid as a tried to save her fall. She is ok but has a bruised back today,19/06/11. I scuffed my foot over the other chamber lid to see if that too was as slippery to find it was as bad. Although our woman friend is ok, the result of the fall could have been worse for her, and worries me to think if an elderly person was to slip on one of these covers.

  • Lake Foreshore Erosion/Protection6 update
    The protection "mattress" has rotted and disintegrated, and the erosion cavities are almost undermining the walkway. It's a diabolical disgrace and it's been like it for many weeks, if not months. It's not a good look for Taupo for both residents and visitors. So it needs some FIXIT attention URGENTLY and it needs to be done PROPERLY. In fact this, and a few other similar deficiencies, would be a far more appropriate use for the extra $100,000 which the council proposes to give to DGLT.
  • Hedge overgrowing public walkway2 update

    The curb crossings at the intersection of Tamamutu Street and Tiriraupenga Street are dangerous to use in a wheelchair or mobility scooter. Considering this is the route into town from one of Taupo's main rest homes (St John's Wood in Tamamutu Street)I feel new curb letdowns that meet NZ Standard Access Code regulations should be a priority in this area.

  • stones on road3 update
    The corner of King and Mapara Rd (and the corner of King and Ross Rise) has no 'barriers' of any sort to stop vehicles cutting over the edge of the road, causing stones to be spread over the intersection. This is an on-going problem, and is a danger to traffic (and windscreens), particularly motorbikes. My suggestion is to run a section of kerbing along the road side to stop vehicles going over the edge of the road and ripping up the asphalt. Regards.

With a month before we see an influx of RWC visitors with a few wanting to view our pristine lake, they will be in for a rude shock. If this is not TDC, could you please pass it along to who's responsible to get the best two spots to view the lake from the southern end cleaned up. Thanks.

  • No Curb letdowns for prams and wheelchairs.5 update
    Wheelchair, pram and moblity scooter access via the footpath network to the Taupo boat harbour area, the hidden jewel in Taupo's Tourist Crown, is almost non existant. There are no pedestrian let downs in the curbs on the northern side of Ferry road at all. The cub letdown from the Story Place walkway onto the South end of Redoubt Street by the Boat Harbour Public Toilets is dangerously steep and virtualy unusable for the faint hearted. It can also be blocked by parked cars. Once in the Boat Harbour area there is no wheelchair, mobility scooter, pram access onto the 'Coffee Cart' Island to buy and enjoy a coffee. There is also no way anyone who is wheelchair bound can safely get onto any of the commercial launches for hire. People with physical disabilties do tour and spend money just like any other tourist in our town.

  • Large planter boxes and seating3 update
    This may or maynot be the correct place to air this issue, but here goes. The rusty tree planters and temperary decking on corner on Heu Heu and Ruapehu street is an obstruction to free movement and parking of residents attempting to access shops. Can these please be removed from the car parking spaces, and if absolutely necessary to have, then placed onto park or reserve land near the chosen cafe's. They are simply an eye sore in our town.

  • Street light repair - not urgent - next time in the area please3 update
    Hi, We own the section at 868 Acacia Bay Road and are in the process of planning to build a house. The street light immediately outside the property is leaning and it would be good if it could be straigtened up (it is not about to fall over, hence not urgent - only a slight lean). Is it also possible to use some form of reflector to focus the light itself on the road as it also shines very brightly on what will be our front deck / lounge area (is there something that can block the back of the bulb?) Also, noticed there is not much lighting on Acacia Bay road where it runs in front of Wily terrace - are there any plans for this so people do not have to use high beams (and perhaps as they are starting to redo the retaining on Wily Tce). Thanks very much.

  • Overgrown trees require pruning in The Pheasant Tail cul-de-sac traffic island1 update
    The Pheasant Tail cul-de-sac traffic island requires overgrown trees to be pruned. These tall, bushy trees are a traffic hazard due to reduced visibility, especially with some motorists driving around the island the wrong way! On an equally serious note, the pruning of these trees has been identified as a security issue, due to homes being obscured, which provides a place for burglars to hide (refer email from Joy Johnson, Neighbourhood Watch Coordinator, dated 13 July 2017, addressed to residents of The Pheasant Tail and Prince Place).

  • Possible water leak?1 update
    Hi there, I spend a bit of time in Gates Park walking my dog and have noticed the last few times that there has been a significant amount of surface water flowing towards the river where the path is at its closest to the river (when entering from the main road carpark). Initially I thought it was stormwater from all the rain we've had, and it could be that, but its been a while since all the rain and there is still significant water there making me think there may be a water leak perhaps. Thought I would mention it anyway, am sure you'll know straight away whether it is an issue or not. Thanks

Everyone else in the street has a lovely flat area of grass in front of their houses except these two. No one has come back and leveled the ground off or replanted it with grass. Unfortunately this area spoils the look along the rest of the street. Driving around Taupo no other street berm has been left like this and for so long.
