Ti­tahi Bay ra­dio mast ready to come down

Kapi-Mana News - - WHAT’S ON -

The fi­nal sec­tion of Ti­tahi Bay’s ra­dio mast will be re­moved in two weeks.

The top 15 me­tres of the 220-me­tre tall mast was re­moved by he­li­copter be­fore Christ­mas.

Nearby res­i­dents were ad­vised of the work, which in­volved tak­ing off the top guy­wires.

Ab­seil Ac­cess, which has been con­tracted to re­move the mast, is plan­ning to com­plete the work on Fe­bru­ary 16. That would be weath­erde­pen­dent, a spokesman from the mast’s owner, Ra­dio New Zealand, told Kapi-Mana News.

The spokesman said he­li­copter fly­ing time and road clo­sures had been kept to a min­i­mum, and Ra­dio New Zealand was not aware of any com­plaints from Ti­tahi Bay res­i­dents.
