Clarification on queries regarding Ahuroa Rd follows.

‘Design and consenting’ is progressing for the proposed full 8km length of sealing work on Ahuroa Rd. The initial design had been focussed on what was referred to as Stage 1, chainage (from West Coast Road) = 850m to 5,875m, being the flatter western portion.

Learnings from this have informed the design approach for the remaining eastern hilly section referred to as stage 2, chainage (from West Coast Road) = 5,875m to 10,075m which is currently at the design phase.

Construction is proposed for the 19/20 and the 20/21 financial years (FY) as per the programme below, with the Stage 2 section planned to be constructed first due to its relatively poorer condition. The timing of construction of the Stage 1 section will be dependent on budget availability.

Although the 19/20 financial year is only 2 months away, construction is planned to commence in the latter half of the 19/20 FY i.e during the Jan- May 2020 construction window.
