Concrete progress in airport upgrade
The construction of the new Taupō Airport terminal is well underway, with the foundation poured and framing going up. The new terminal will be approximately twice the size of the existing building.
Airport Operations Manager Kim Gard said it is exciting to see the foundation in place and the project becoming a reality. “A lot of people have worked really hard to get this project over the line and the new terminal is going to be a fantastic addition to the wider district and a real asset to locals and visitors alike,” she said.
“In addition to the new terminal we will have a sealed carpark with more than 120 spaces, offering safer and efficient traffic flow for users, and a terminal that is more functional as well as being a fitting introduction to the district.
"Despite the disruptions caused by COVID-19 including delays to the supply chain, we are still on track to see the project completed in late 2022 – so watch this space, exciting things are coming!”
