Rail­way build­ing up­grade

Ruapehu Press - - Out & About - FRANCES FER­GU­SON

The pub­lic will get an­other op­por­tu­nity to have an in­put into the Tau­marunui’s town cen­tre re­vi­tal­i­sa­tion project.

The plans in­clude big changes for the rail­way build­ing, a new i-site and new pub­lic toi­lets and pro­vi­sion for park­ing.

Pro­posed plans for the Tau­marunui Rail­way Sta­tion build­ing in­clude mov­ing the I-SITE to the north­ern end of the sta­tion, and re­fur­bish­ing the out­side of the build­ing.

There will also be pro­vi­sion for space in the Rail­way build­ing for com­mu­nity groups and a mu­seum.

‘‘When coun­cil re­con­venes in Au­gust, they will be able to con­sider tak­ing on the lease for all of the build­ing, which would al­low these projects to pro­ceed,’’ said com­mit­tee chair Karen Ngatai.

‘‘While the Ward Com­mit­tee is keen for mo­men­tum to be main­tained there are a num­ber of sig­nif­i­cant things that coun­cil and the com­mu­nity still need to con­sider no­tably around how any ma­jor township re­vi­tal­i­sa­tion projects are funded.

‘‘These will be part of the Long Term Plan (LTP) 2018-28 con­sul­ta­tion next year.’’
