A flurry of activity around Tamahere has brought new developments for walkers, drivers and those who catch the bus – with more major changes ahead.
Residents and travellers of Newell Rd have been contending with major roadworks for weeks as a large section of the road, stretching from near the SH 1 end, is resurfaced and a footpath put in at a cost of $736,580.
Meanwhile, catching the bus from the SH 1 on-ramp bus-stop has become a drier prospect after a shelter was put up this week.
A commemoration service on Saturday, May 11 will remember a long-serving WDC environment planner. The service will be held at the future site of the Allan Turner Walkway.
