We're Getting Our Road Back

Posted by Awaroa Ratepayers on 21 February 2012 | 0 Comments

Awaroa Ratepayers are delighted to hear from Councillor Trevor Norriss, Chairman Engineering Services Committee, Tasman District Council, that funding is secured for the repair of the Totaranui Road which includes the Awaroa Road.   Totaranui Rd is 100% funded by the New Zealand Transport Agency and Awaroa Rd by the Council providing a subsidy for repairs and maintenance.   This work has or is due to start.  It will take some time and the road will be closed while construction takes place.  At this time we have got no information as to how long this could take. 

It takes a whole Council to make these decisions so thank you to all the Councillors and their hard-working staff for realising the importance of the roads to local communities, tourists and visitors - including Cr Jack Inglis, the ward councillor for Riwaka-Motueka, who has also been involved.

New Zealand has a reputation for being the home of extreme adventures, but there's plenty to do there if you're not that courageous.I did a two-day trip with Wilson's which included a cruise up to Totaranui, guided walks along the coast, an overnight stay at the Meadowbank homestead - a replica of the Wilson's original family home - and kayaking.
