In­for­ma­tion ses­sion for Kamo shared path project

Whangarei Report - - NEWS -

Neigh­bours of the Kamo Shared Path have had the chance to ask ques­tions about the project at an in­for­ma­tion ses­sion.

Whanga¯ rei Dis­trict Coun­cil se­nior road­ing en­gi­neer Nick Mar­shall said around 35 peo­ple turned up at the open af­ter­noon at Kamo In­ter­me­di­ate re­cently.

Engi­neers in­volved in the project were on hand with maps to show the com­mu­nity the route, the progress and an­swer any ques­tions they had.

“Most peo­ple were just cu­ri­ous and wanted to get a bit of an overview of the project.”

Mar­shall said the path will be lit and have CCTV cov­er­age the whole length.

He said the Rust Ave pedes­trian cross­ing and the sec­tion of path from Rust Ave to Vin­ery Lane was ex­pected to be fin­ished this week.

The Kens­ing­ton Ave to Kamo Rd sec­tion was ex­pected to take a fur­ther three to five weeks.

The rail un­der­pass from Adams Place to Fisher Ter­race, would be con­structed over the Christ­mas and New Year pe­riod.

The con­tract for stage three, from Kamo Rd to Jack St, has been ap­proved and con­struc­tion is planned to start be­fore Christ­mas and fin­ish around May 2019.

The path from Jack St to Fisher Ter­race will be started early next year and fin­ished in mid 2019.

Stage five — an ex­ten­sion to Kamo Vil­lage is part of the fu­ture plans.

A sec­tion from Vin­ery Lane to Cross St is open, as is Cross St to Kamo Rd.
