Work starts on site

Taupo & Turangi Weekender - - News - Rachel Can­ning

An im­pres­sive col­lec­tion of large ma­chin­ery is work­ing on Broad­lands Rd, near BP 2Go Tauhara.

Earth­works are well un­der way for a new six-lot com­mer­cial sub­di­vi­sion, with lots rang­ing in size from 2000 to 10,000 square me­tres.

Todd Land De­vel­op­ment Con­sul­tants Ltd project man­ager Chris Todd says the site has been ter­raced into us­able flat ar­eas for the new own­ers to op­er­ate from, as quite ex­ten­sive earth­works were re­quired to deal with the ris­ing ground level along Broad­lands Rd. Ac­cess to the de­vel­op­ment will be off Broad­lands Rd, and a new in­ter­sec­tion will also be con­structed off Miro St to en­able con­nec­tion to the ex­ist­ing in­dus­trial area.

Chris says the four lots clos­est to the BP have sold, while the other two lots nearer the eastern ar­te­rial high­way (State High­way 1) have not been al­lo­cated as they are still go­ing through the re­source con­sent process. The land is zoned com­mer­cial / light in­dus­trial, and while not at lib­erty to dis­close the names of the buy­ers, Chris says the na­ture of the busi­ness at­tracted to the new sub­di­vi­sion is to do with sup­port­ing the build­ing in­dus­try.

“The new own­ers are a mix of ex­ist­ing lo­cal busi­ness that are re­lo­cat­ing to the site, and new busi­ness that is com­ing to Taupo¯ to op­er­ate. The busi­ness on the low­est ter­race is hop­ing to open in April 2019. Build­ing should be­gin on this site soon.”
