Roadside mowing halted due to fire risk

Friday 22 February 2013

Due to the extreme fire risk, our mowing contractor GSL has stopped all routine mowing until the area receives rain. GSL had an a small incident where one of their mowers started a fire last week on SH1 and this was a factor in making the decision.

The only mowing on the roading network at present is on areas classed as safety issues eg sight lines at intersections.

The mowers will remain in the area parked up ready for the first rain.
