The final stage
Brian Tegg said that while the replica bus is now completed as a result of generous local funding, the Piopio College Trust is about to embark on the final stage of the project. “This is the building of a display garage in the main street of Piopio to house the bus and outline — in pictures, print, and video commentary — its historical significance and reconstruction history. “The discounted support of Totalspan, provider of over 400 rural bus shelters for students throughout New Zealand, in conjunction with Allied Concrete and New Zealand Steel, has brought this project almost to a close.
“An extra $3K will enable a higher quality of presentation. Donations to the trust’s account (03 0449 0107019 01) would be much appreciated,” he said.
