The Kairaki Beach vehicle access has been closed today to comply with advice from the Government to discourage any activity that may result in an emergency services callout. Vehicles spotted on the beach are causing concern that some people are not following Alert Level 4 guidelines. To prevent this activity, the entrance has been temporarily fenced off. While people who live locally may still walk to their local beach also following physical distancing rules, driving on the beaches during this time is not allowed. Visit the official COVID-19 website for advice on what you can do to enjoy the outdoors while the country is at Alert Level 4.
