Pihanga Road upgrade complete
The upgrade to the Pihanga Road centre island is now finished, with new kerbing and channeling complete and landscaping installed.
There is still a little work to be done tidying up the adjacent seal, but Turangi Tongariro Community Board Chair Clint Green says the upgrade is looking fantastic and he’s looking forward to the finishing touches being done in the coming week or two.
“The entrance to Turangi has been greatly improved with this work,” Mr Green said, “it makes for a much more attractive introduction to the town and just in time for summer! This is part of the Turangi Street Revitalisation Project which is making a our streetscapes not only look better, but also safer as well. I’d like to thank the contractor for great work and wrapping up this section well ahead of schedule despite the weather, and all the team on the community board for the work they have put in on a project that is changing the way our town looks for generations to come. And we’re not finished yet – we have more packages of work to come revitalising residential streets as well as a some more work in the CBD.”
