Whitianga Town Centre upgrade ‘on track’
The Thames-Coromandel District Council is literally on track with stage two of the Whitianga Town upgrade, with the path being built between Taylors Mistake and The Esplanade getting closer to completion.
The topsoil stripping at Taylors Mistake, to create the new path alignment, has been finished and power conduits laid for the streetlights to go in.
Bidim cloth and a subbase has also been laid along the path, with timber box edging underway.
A 1.8 meter-high fence has been erected around the construction site, both at the site compound at Taylors Mistake and the new water-playground area, for health and safety purposes.
"Overall, we've had extremely positive feedback from the public," says says Andrew Boden, our Council's project manager.
"We're holding fortnightly construction impact meetings, with the next one planned for 29 April at 2pm," says Mr Boden.
Meanwhile, two existing Maori Princess trees have been relocated to new locations along the hoggin path at Taylors Mistake.
The timber decking construction at the plaza has been completed including the balustrade fencing.
The water-playground area at the Esplanade will be completed with one more concrete pour to be done this week.
