Road Maintenance Tender

The Council invites tenders from suitably qualified contractors for the routine maintenance of sealed and unsealed roading corridors within Gore District. Detailed information and tender documents are available  on our Tenders page.

MacGibbon Road Traffic Delays

There will be intermittent traffic delays and road closures on MacGibbon Road, between the intersection with Mountain Road and State Highway 1 for about two months, starting Wednesday 28 June. This is to allow contractors lay utilities infrastructure from the Mataura Valley Milk plant, at McNab just north east of Gore, into the town. 

Water Mains Cleaning

Gore and Mataura residents are advised that from Wednesday 31 May to mid-July a specialised mobile filtration unit, mounted on a truck, will be cleaning the water mains in both towns.

There should be minimum impact on the water supply, however, some residents may notice a temporary reduction in water pressure and/or some discolouration. If discolouration occurs, please turn on a tap and run the water until it’s clear. The Council thanks residents for their patience and understanding. For more information go to our 3 Waters section

Flush Water Before Drinking

The Ministry of Health recommends that you flush a mugful of water from your drinking water tap each morning, before use, to remove any traces of metals from the plumbing fittings that may have dissolved. This simple precaution is recommended for all households in the District, whether on public or private water supplies, as trace metals in water can pose a small risk to your health.
