Piopio Cosmopolitan Club Carpark to receive facelift

26 Oct 2023, 10:38 AM

The Piopio Cosmopolitan Club Carpark will soon receive a much-needed facelift, with construction works due to start next week.

The project to seal the carpark will be fully-funded by Waitomo District Council using its allocated Three Waters “Better-Off” Funding, meaning the work will come at no cost to ratepayers.

In 2022, Council received $3.55m from Central Government’s Three Waters Better-Off Fund to spend on projects that support improvements to town amenities and community well-being.

General Manager Infrastructure Services, Shyamal Ram says the carpark is well used by the community, visitors and those passing through, and it would make a big difference to the town if the carpark was sealed.

“Having a sealed carpark will create better accessibility and greater ease of use for those who use it.”

“Once completed, it will provide improved infrastructure for all road users, featuring signage, entry and exit driveways, drainage systems, bicycle racks, wheel stops, and designated accessibility parking.”

The works will be undertaken by MS Civil Engineering and will take around two months to complete.
