Out and about in our community
A range of staff from the project enjoyed meeting locals at Central Districts Field Days in March (pictured below).
Our site included a giant map of the new highway route, plus our interactive ‘drive the highway’ software which puts you at the steering wheel, traversing the future 11.5km route between Ashhurst and Woodville.
We’re looking forward to more community engagement in May at a series of public information sessions around the region (details below). In addition, the visitor information centre at our site office near Ashhurst will soon be complete and plans are underway for project information displays in Woodville.
The Te Ahu a Turanga procurement team had a great turn-out to two information sessions in late February, in Dannevirke and Palmerston North. The evening events were for local businesses interested in finding out how to apply for work on the highway, and included a run-down of the procurement process and all the support available to help businesses with a successful bid.
