Horomatangi and Ruapehu intersection transformation continues
Phase two of the Horomatangi and Ruapehu streets intersection upgrade is well underway, with contractors preparing areas for seating and new gardens.
Project manager Darren Penketh said roads were likely to remain open throughout this phase of the upgrade.
“Thanks to everyone who has driven slowly through the roundabout to help our workers safely get on with the job,” he said.
“Next week will see corners being prepared for cobblestone pavers and we’ll be working toward finalising the landscaping and seating.”
The work is part of the government-funded Taupō Town Centre Transformation project which aims to ensure the continued and sustainable growth and development of Taupō's town centre, with a focus on the needs of our community.
It will transform our public places into spaces that attract people to spend time and invest in the town centre. It will also deliver on the community’s aspirations for an attractive town centre with shared streets focused on the needs of pedestrians and cyclists.
