What do you think should happen to the water tower?

Libby Totton Reporter from Cambridge Edition

It’s an icon in Cambridge but saving the century-old water tower could cost a whopping $6 million.

Another option is demolishing the tower - one of two in NZ and a heritage site - at a cost of $800,000, which a Waipā District councillor called “pretty bananas”.

Rumours the South Waikato’s council wants to sell off or close down public facilities - including libraries, pools and the Tokoroa airfield - are just rumours, according to the district’s deputy mayor.

However, deputy mayor Hamish Daine said confusion over a series of “signals” made in the council’s Long-Term Plan (LTP) consultation document had seen some locals “jumping to conclusions” about what those signals mean.

From early June, road reconstruction work will begin on State Highway 2, High Street, Carterton until early July, weather permitting.

The works are between Rhodes Street and south of Andersons Line. Southbound vehicles will need to detour at Somerset Road, Carters Line and Park Road which adds a significant amount of time to journeys. Northbound traffic can travel through High Street with speed limits in place. We encourage you to plan ahead to avoid delays.

This section of the road is in poor condition so it’s important for the safety of everyone who uses the road that this work is undertaken. The works will be unavoidably disruptive for the Carterton community and SH2 users in the Wairarapa.

We appreciate that roadworks are inconvenient for neighbours, and thank the community in advance for their patience while we complete these major works.
