Soldier returns to Cenotaph
9 Apr 2015
The solider will return to his vantage point on top of the Cenotaph tomorrow Friday 10 April, with a blessing at 10am – weather permitting. “The public are welcome to attend the blessing and watch as the solider is re-positioned back on top,” says project manager Kylie Cranston. A crane will be onsite from 8.30am for the soldier to be loaded and raised into position within a secure cage to protect the soldier and line up the fixtures. New foundations have been installed and the plinth was straightened and strengthened with corrosion proof mateen framing from Pultron Composites to give the soldier a stronger base. Once the cage is removed, the statue will be connected with shaft rods and then bolted to the internal steel frame. The reinstatement of the soldier is the last piece of the restoration project. Work is on track to be completed ready in time to celebrate the centenary of the Anzac landings in Gallipoli on Saturday 25 April. “Landscaping work is also underway which includes, new lighting, new pavers and bollards and adjoining a new riverside cycle and walkway,” says Ms Cranston. The Cenotaph was unveiled on the same day in 1923 to honour our district’s servicemen who fell during the First World War, and remains a tribute to those who’ve fought and died in wars since.

Road closure over Titirangi delayed
24 Mar 2015
The harvesting of the pines on Titirangi has been delayed, the road will remain open until Wednesday 8 April. “We are waiting on a hauler that is delayed in getting to Gisborne, so our contractor X-Men Logging is keen to hold off setting up until after Easter,” says acting group manager planning and development Geoff Canham, “It means people can still use the road over the hill until then.” Council have sent a notice to residents in the area advising them of the delayed start date. “We’d like people to know of the change in start date, but also that the target completion date, 1 May, hasn’t changed.” “Contractors are confident they can set-up and will aim to start cutting operations by 14 April, “With extra staff resources, they will finish harvesting within 15 days. “So it works out better to minimise the duration and have a lesser impact on neighbours,” says Mr Canham. Once complete the harvest area will be re-vegetated with native plants. “We will start replanting as soon as we can in May and will continue the enhancements over the next 2-3 years, “The site may look bare for some time, but it will be worth it to return the reserve back to a more natural environment in the end.” Anyone who wants to receive updates on the Titirangi harvest or how you can be involved restoration project can sign up to the email newsletter on the Titirangi webpage[/titirangi-reserve-restoration/]. For any queries from the public during the harvest contact Geoff Canham at Council on 06 867 2049. Read more >>
