Steam roller back in park

Waipa Post - - News -

For more than 40 years a for­mer coun­cil road­ing team steam roller has been a favourite play item at Leam­ing­ton Do­main.

The equip­ment was do­nated by the team when it was re­tired from ser­vice in 1975.

Un­for­tu­nately the steam roller fell into dis­re­pair — the good news is that it has been re­fur­bished and re­in­stalled.

Com­mu­nity fa­cil­i­ties man­ager Bruce Airey said the work was nec­es­sary to bring the steam roller up to play­ground stan­dards.

“The steam roller has al­ways been a much-loved part of the play­ground but a safety re­view showed it wasn’t meet­ing our health and safety stan­dards. The de­ci­sion was made to in­vest in re­pairs so the com­mu­nity could en­joy the roller for years to come.”

Re­pairs were funded from ex­ist­ing main­te­nance bud­gets.
