Lake Terrace now open

Darren Petry from Taupo District Council

Lake Terrace is now open to all traffic, following three months of major infrastructure repairs as a result of a washout event in July.

The work has involved complex design challenges with the installation of over 300 metres of watermain pipes as well as new stormwater and sewer systems. A new nine metre high retaining wall has also been built.

Chief executive Gareth Green said the project had been a mammoth task.

“We wouldn’t have been able to achieve this without the help of the community. Thank you for your patience as we have worked to not only reinstate the road, but better future-proof the area.

“Not only have we moved the sewer and watermain further away from the lake, we have also installed a new stormwater separator that will help to remove more pollutants entering our stormwater.

“Of course, we also need to acknowledge the businesses who have been affected over this time. Thank you for your support and understanding as we have worked hard to get this area back up and running.”

Kelvin Cruickshank Live In Rotorua

Kelvin Cruickshank Show

Hi neighbours, by Popular Demand NZ Medium Kelvin Cruickshank has rescheduled his Rotorua Show!

Passing on messages from people who have died and are in spirit is what Kelvin was put on earth to do.

However, since the incredible success of Sensing Murder there's been such a great demand from people on this side wanting private readings that is just not physically possible for him to do them anymore.

So relax, chill out and enjoy the show, and you never know.. it could be your loved ones who show up. And even if they don't, hopefully the evening will open your eyes to the fact those we've lost are now in the white light, and their spirit lives on.

Date: 2nd December 2019
Location: Rydges Rotorua (272 Fenton Street, Glen home, Rotorua)
Show Time: 7pm - 9:30pm
