Get­ting to Fiel­d­ays

Katikati Advertiser - - Your Community Voice -

“We’ve got your op­tions cov­ered for mak­ing your way to Fiel­d­ays this week, be it by car, bus, ferry or even he­li­copter. Take a back seat and avoid the queues with al­ter­na­tive trans­port op­tions de­liv­er­ing you straight to the gate, say or­gan­is­ers of the New Zealand Na­tional Fiel­d­ays.

To help ease traf­fic con­ges­tion dur­ing Fiel­d­ays, the New Zealand Na­tional Fiel­d­ays So­ci­ety has part­nered with the Waikato Re­gional Coun­cil to pro­vide free bus ser­vices to and from the 50th Fiel­d­ays.

Peo­ple­with a Fiel­d­ays ticket will be able to ride free on all Hamil­ton and re­gional (Huntly, Paeroa, Te Aroha, Mor­rinsville, Raglan, Cam­bridge and Te Awa­mutu) bus ser­vices to and from the trans­port cen­tre. They can then catch the free Fiel­d­ays bus from the Hamil­ton Trans­port Cen­tre out to Mys­tery Creek.

They also have free Park & Rides based in the north­ern carpark at The Base in Hamil­ton and the Cam­bridgeBMXClub where peo­ple can present their Fiel­d­ays ticket, park their car and leave it se­curely to catch a Fiel­d­ays bus, de­part­ing ev­ery 30 mins be­tween the hours of 8am and 11am drop­ping visi­tors straight to the bot­tom of Gate 1 at Mys­tery Creek.

Those wish­ing to drive them­selves are ad­vised to take care when us­ing the roads sur­round­ing the Mys­tery Creek area and be aware of traf­fic man­age­ment and de­lays. For an idea of travel times head to www.jour­neys.nzta.govt.nz/waikato/ traf­fic-dash­board. Or­gan­is­ers say while there is a ro­bust traf­fic man­age­ment plan de­vised in con­junc­tion­with New Zealand Po­lice, NZ Trans­port Agency and Waipa District Coun­cil, con­ges­tion is in­evitable, and they urge driv­ers to be pa­tient and con­sid­er­ate of fel­low commuters.

If you’d rather not travel by road, you can take to the air with pre­ferred sup­plier Helicorp or jump on the Waikato Ex­plorer, de­part­ing from the Hamil­ton Gar­dens and dis­em­bark­ing at Gate 7 Jetty. For a speedy ar­rival Cam­jet is also de­part­ing Nar­rows Lane Tama­here, also dis­em­bark­ing at the Gate 7 Jetty. For all de­par­ture in­for­ma­tion and to book please see helicorp.co.nz waika­to­ex­plorer.co.nz or cam­jet.co.nz
