Winter Road Conditions
Before you head off on your early morning commute or hop in the car on road trip this winter it pays to check in on the road conditions. Council's contractor Fulton Hogan issues daily road conditions reports over winter on the local CODC roading network.
You'll find these under the Reports button on The Central App. The reports are also broadcast on Radio Central and Maniototos Burn.
