The tihi and summit road at Takarunga were permanently closed to private motor vehicles in March 2018, in respect of its spiritual and cultural significance to Mana Whenua. Takararo, adjacent to Takarunga, was completely leveled by quarrying and is now the flat park known as Cambria Reserve. A buried reservoir at the top of the maunga is marked by colourful 'mushroom' vents. During the eruption, the south side of the crater was breached by lava flows, and scoria from the top of Takarunga was carried down the mountain in these lava flows and came to rest near the south end of modern-day Church St. This small mound would become known as Duders Hill until it was quarried away in the early twentieth century.
