Ōpunakē - Otahi Bridge Upgrade to Start
Work will begin on Monday 2 Marchto install a new foot bridge across the Otahi Stream in Ōpunakē.
South Taranaki District Council have contracted BridgeIt to complete this work.
The new bridge will provide locals safe access across the stream to the urupa below Te Namu Pa and to the neighbouring bay.
Weather permitting, the bridge will take 2-3 weeks to construct. During this time there will be periods of closure to this area of the Ōpunakē Loop Walkway.
Members of the community are invited to join local Community Board members, Councillors, Te Namu Pa trustees, Iwi and council staff to a blessing to start this work at 9am on Monday 2 March, meeting just below the Te Namu Pa site.
