One of the highlights from last week’s Council meeting was hearing that the construction of the replacement for Hawthorne Road bridge is expected to start by May. The bridge is the first of a package of 5 to get underway, together they have a total estimated cost of $4million. Thanks to funding from NZTA, Council’s share of the cost is just 10%. To ensure safety and provide for future growth, Hawthorne Road, Rorrisons Road and Evans Road bridges will be replaced with two lane bridges (not the original one lane), a pedestrian footpath will also be added to Hawthorne Bridge. All five bridges (Hawthorne, Rorrisons Road, Gillings Lane, Fyffe Road, Evans Bridge and Scotts Road) will be complete by February 2020.
