Road slips in Kaiaua

On Sunday the other half and I drove out to visit his sister and her husband in Orere Point. On the way we drove along the Kaiaua Coastline (pronounced Kie-awa) - all up it usually takes us about 2 hours to get there.

They must've had some serious rain here because all along the coast road it was lined with road slips. In fact most of it was down to one lane with orange road cones to show people how far they could drive.

From what we've been told this road has been like this for about a year and contractors have been busy trying to fix it. One part we drove along had bits of stone and dirt falling from the cliff next to our car - scary stuff!


  1. Many years since we went round there. Lovely drive usually.

  2. They might have to realign the road at some point.

  3. I recall similar problems on the Napier to Gisborne Road amongst others and it highlights the communication problems that can occur between towns and areas in New Zealand.

  4. Looks like some serious work will be done to the road to make it safe. Be careful if you have to drive on it.

  5. Beautiful photos of the coast and wow to the road slips ~ be safe ~

    Happy Day to you,
