Investigation report conducted in 2016 into why the reseal work on the stretch of road south of Atiamuri kept failing.

Kathy White made this Official Information request to New Zealand Transport Agency

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Kathy White to read a recent response and update the status.

From: Kathy White

Dear New Zealand Transport Agency,

In 2016, in response to my queries about multiple serious and fatal crashes around Atiamuri, I was told that:

A 300 metre long stretch of road south of Atiamuri had been resealed multiple times, and that the repairs had only been partially successful. I was told that the situation was unusual, that the different products trialled in each repair had been unsuccessful, and that tests were currently underway to determine what the issue was.

As the speed restrictions on this stretch of road have continued on and off since then, I assume the issue with tar seal bleeds and problems with binding agents have continued.

Please (1) provide the test results and the report that ensued, that was supposed to provide a strategy for moving forward in relation to the road surface at SH1 Atiamuri. (2) Correspondence to and from the NZTA in relation to tar seal bleeding in the Atiamuri area from 2015 to 2019.

Please also answer these questions:
(3) Did you find a solution to the problem you were having with the road seal in this area, and were future road repairs successful?
(4) Was there an issue with tar seal bleeding along this stretch of road at any time in 2019?

Yours faithfully,

Kathy White
Waikato Regional Councillor for Taupo-Rotorua
