Arch Hill Re­serve now as­bestos free

Auckland City Harbour News - - News -

As­bestos clean-up work has fin­ished at a Grey Lynn park.

The his­toric dump of roof­ing ma­te­rial found in Arch Hill Re­serve has been re­moved and the walk­way re­opened.

The as­bestos was dis­cov­ered in Novem­ber but the site sealed un­til the Auck­land City Coun­cil found a way to re­move the soil from the steep slope.

Coun­cil ur­ban soils re­view project man­ager Mar­cus Her­mann says fenc­ing is still to be in­stalled and re­plant­ing done over the next fort­night.

The Grey Lynn li­brary and com­mu­nity hall were closed for a day while a crane was used on site.

Mr Her­mann says the re­me­dial work was car­ried out suc­cess­fully.
