I think I was hoping this post was going to say that waka kotahi was taking out the rail line on dalefield Rd so Kiwirail can't shut down our level crossings 🤭🤭🤗😜

Council is making this proposal, as the hall building is no longer fit for public purposes and requires a substantial upgrade. Belvedere Hall has Reserve Act status under the Community Building Reserve Category. The Hall has no heritage value.

Council has considered the options and concluded we would like to explore the options of disposal. The building needs a considerable amount of work and updating, which is not budgeted.

We are proposing to revoke the reserve status which will allow Council to dispose of the building and allow us to sell the land.

In 2009 the Council consulted on the sale of 29 Holloway Street to support with building costs for the Carterton Event Centre. However, in 2015, the Council decided to retain the building until future governance outcomes for Wairarapa had been determined. Following damage from extreme weather events, temporary repairs have been made, however further issues have been identified. Figures to repair all damages and prevent further occurrences have been estimated to be upwards of $184,243. We are proposing to reconsider and explore the options of the sale of 29 Holloway Street.

***UPDATE: Temporary speed limit and reopening plans for Hughes Line***

A temporary speed limit and road reopening measures are being implemented to ensure the safety and efficiency of traffic flow on Hughes Line during ongoing roadworks on State Highway 2 (SH2).

***Northbound Closure remains in force; Southbound only reopening***
The East Taratahi – Cornwall section of Hughes Line will reopen for southbound traffic only, starting Tuesday 6 June. This section will remain open exclusively for southbound traffic until Waka Kotahi completes its works on State Highway 2.

***Temporary Signage and Priority Traffic Measures***
Waka Kotahi will remove the 100 km/hr sign at the start of the road section. Temporary signage indicating a speed limit of 70 km/hr will be installed for the reopening of the northern section. Priority traffic signs, such as one-lane bridge indicators, will also be placed at the culverts, giving priority to southbound traffic.

***Ongoing Monitoring and Potential Road Closures***
Council will closely monitor the situation to ensure public safety.
