πŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸŽ„Oh, what a big day it’s been! We’ve had a mega team effort putting up this year’s Christmas tree 🌲 and boy, isn’t she a beauty? Straight from Santa’s Christmas Trees at Cedar Lodge Nurseries, she certainly brings the festive spirit to town! πŸŽ…πŸŒŸ.Big shout out to our tree wizards at Tricky Trees πŸ§™β€β™‚οΈ, who’ve worked their magic on the installation, and the mighty Roebuck trucks πŸš›, for delivering our tree royalty to her throne. All though this is temporary position for the tree and let’s not forget our hardworking NPDC team and NPE Tech team who are still working on adding the twinkling lights ✨.But hey, Waitara community, we’ve got a little safety reminder for you! πŸ“£ While we know how thrilling it can be to see such a magnificent tree, we request you to keep a safe distance, especially with the little ones. The fencing and decorations are still to go up after the weekend 🚧. Let’s keep the festive fun safe for everyone, shall we? πŸŽ„πŸŽπŸŽ…πŸŒŸStay tuned for more updates and remember – Safety first, fun always! πŸŽ„πŸŽ‰πŸŽ…πŸŽ See MoreSee Less

m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=749211947246280&id=100064724437107&mibextid=Nif5ozAn update on the safety improvements we’re making to State Highway 3 in Waitara: On 11 December we’ll start the next stage of construction on a roundabout and pedestrian underpass at the intersection of SH3 and Princess Street in Waitara. Workers will be building the northbound lane of the roundabout and completing the pedestrian underpass. At the same time, they’ll widen the road and start installing a median barrier between Bayly Street and Mamaku Road. They’ll also start building a stormwater outfall at the northern end of the Waitara River bridge which’ll release stormwater into the awa. There’s a lot of work to do, and to do it safely and efficiently we have to close SH3 between Nelson Street and Bayly Street from 11 December 2023 until 2 February 2024. There’ll be a detour through Waitara township. We know the closure and detour is inconvenientβ€”we explored other options that didn’t involve closing the road completely, and they would’ve resulted in disruption for up to 18 months. By closing the road for just eight weeks we minimise the length of time your travel is disrupted. It also coincides with the school holidays, reducing the impact it otherwise would have. More information about the closure and detour is available on our website: www.nzta.govt.nz/w2bb See MoreSee Less
