Concrete progress on ETA
The roundabout linking State Highway 1 and Lake Terrace has taken on a new look with a new pathway next to the roadside being poured last week.
This section of path is part of the $3.6 million government-funded ETA pathway project. The shared use path provides a safer travel option for pedestrians, cyclists, wheelchair users, runners, and others. It will provide a low-stress experience for a variety of users using the network for transportation or recreation.
A courtesy crossing on Lake Terrace is part of the new path design too, providing a safer option to get across the busy arterial route leading in and out of Taupō.
Locally employed workers from Camex and MCP Concrete are tasked with keeping the project on time and within budget. The pathway is expected to be completed June 2022, weather permitting.
