Truck parks create improved parking zones in Mōkau

Trucks will soon be able to safely park in Mōkau thanks to a Waitomo District Council project that aims to create improved parking zones in the seaside town.

Council contractor Camex Civil is currently installing truck parks on both sides of Mōkau’s main road, which will enable up to three trucks to safely park off the road. 

Four additional carparks will also be added, which completes another stage of amenity improvements following the construction of a new toilet block in Mōkau in November 2022.

General Manager Infrastructure Services, Shyamal Ram says the project is great news for the Mōkau community as parking has been an issue for some time.

“The programme of works is about ensuring safety measures are in place for those wishing to stop and enjoy the town.”

The project is fully funded by WDC and expected to be completed in November.
