Information session for Kamo shared path project
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.
