State highways are owned and maintained by the New Zealand Transport Agency, while the local roading network is the responsibility of Taupō District Council.
Road maintenance can involve anything from road sweeping and minor repairs such as fixing a pot hole to more major work including resealing and road widening projects.
Resealing repairs defects in the existing road surface and reduces the rate of further deterioration, ensuring our roads remain safe and able to cope with the amount of traffic using them.
Road resealing is carried out every summer as part of a planned road maintenance programme. Priority is given to roads with surface cracking, potholes and other issues which could pose a risk to motorists.
