More Info →Flood 2004 - Kimbolton Road Bridge

On Feilding's northern boundary, the Kiwitea Stream had broken its banks and attacked the Kimbolton Rd bridge supports from two directions. Eighty metres of the dual carriageway concrete bridge disappeared. When the bridge went, the stream-turned-river attacked the surrounding banks with a vengeance. About 500sq m of land was lost, also a large implement shed containing grader parts, tyres and other equipment. On the far bank of the river another 80m of land was washed away in just an hour.
