Waikereru Bridge on Riverside Road has a speed restriction

There is a major slump of the riverbank under the Waikereru Bridge, 10.4 km along Riverside Road.  
A 10 km/h speed restriction is in place for light vehicles crossing the bridge.
Heavy vehicles greater than 3500kg gross are banned from using the bridge until further notice.   
We will have contractors on-site as soon as possible to restore support to the bank under the bridge.
