With top machinery and a highly experienced earthmoving team, we carry out all earthworks and excavation projects to high accuracy and standards, every time.

Our fleet includes excavators of varying sizes, bulldozers, graders, loaders and compacting rollers and our team of highly trained drivers, and digger and dozer operators have been digging, levelling, land sculpting, moving dirt, rocks, rubble and spoil for years. We provide professional excavation, delivery and removal services to residential and commercial clients for earthworks projects such as driveways, house and shed sites, retaining walls, subdivisions, carparks and pavement rehabilitation and land sculpting.

Local knowledge can be hugely important when selecting civil contractors. Many of our staff are born-and-bred locals and therefore have a good understanding of working in the sometimes difficult Rodney area; they’re familiar with the varying soil types and terrains, such as Omaha peat, sands and Mahurangi clays.

Combining skill with experience and local know-how, we will complete your project on schedule and to the highest standard. Committed to efficient, reliable professional service, we are specialists in site preparation, land contouring and earthworks projects.

More services

Commercial and residential siteworks

Developments and house sites are our speciality. We have a range of earthwork machines suited to this type of work. From machines fitted out with laser level systems for accurate grade control right through to smaller excavators for footings and foundations, drainage jobs, accessways and driveway shaping and levelling. Our small diggers are great for difficult access sites and for excavating around driveways, lawns and houses while causing minimal disturbance.

Rhodes for Roads can provide the complete package for all your siteworks requirements.

Carpark construction and rehabilitation

We have small machines ideally suited for smaller, compact carpark areas, as well as larger machinery to construct commercial and industrial parking areas.

Our laser survey equipment will ensure the required levels and grades specified are within the allowable tolerances. Surfacing options can also be discussed with one of our project managers on-site to determine what is the best option for that particular site. Get in touch on 09 425 8454.

Farm accessways

As any farmer or lifestyle block owner will tell you, when you live in the country, you will need to move earth at some point. 

Every block needs good accessways, drains and fences. A skilled digger operator can accomplish an amazing amount in a few hours, transforming your land for the better, whereas an inexperienced digger operator can make a real mess or lead to extra costs to repair damage caused. Don’t risk it. 

We’ve been carrying out farm race maintenance, drain cleaning, bulk fertiliser supply and farm development work, such as pond, dam, or swale development, for decades, literally. We have good relationships with many of the farming families in the local area. 

If you need driveway or race maintenance or repair or other rural earthworks and excavations done, call us on 09 425 8454. We have the local operators with the experience to do the work you need to get done right.

Forestry roading

Rhodes for Roads has been providing services to the forestry industry since 1985. We undertake new road formations, pavement reclamation, stream crossings, skid site construction and environmental controls, working closely with forestry companies and private landowners as the forests across Rodney reach maturity.


As the growth in Warkworth and the Matakana Coast has increased so too has Rhodes for Roads’ involvement in developing the area’s residential needs.

Since 1985, we have provided subcontract basecourse work through to complete construction packages, including earthworks, stormwater, sewer and pavement construction, for many of the residential developments across Rodney and the Hibiscus Coast.

Our highly experienced project managers can ensure the project is undertaken in a professional and efficient manner.

Retaining walls

In a district that is generally hilly, retaining walls create more available flat area, shape properties, protect foundations, and hold up driveways and pathways. A well-built retaining wall will transform an unused or sloping section and protect against erosion, improving both the aesthetics and usability of any area.  

There are many retaining wall options available. However, we mainly specialise in timber pole retaining walls for small 1m high house site walls through to 4m high slip repair walls, rock spawll walls, which provide a more natural finished product, and reinforced earth walls.

We have the experience and skills to complete both residential and commercial retaining wall builds to a very high standard. Contact us today for an obligation-free quote.

Water supplies

Our trucks service Omaha, Point Wells, Matakana, Mahurangi West, Puhoi, Ahuroa, Tauhoa, Mahurangi East, Warkworth, Leigh & Pakiri; delivering quality water for household and commercial clients.

We are able to offer:
  • Town Supply Water
  • Artesian Water

Many north Rodney residents rely on tank water and during the drier summer months, it is not uncommon to see our burgundy water tankers delivering water 7 days a week.

Our water tankers are also on call for the Warkworth Volunteer Fire Brigade, as first response bulk water suppliers.
