Tauranga waterfront project begins

Tauranga’s new look waterfront should be completed in time to provide the perfect backdrop for next year’s Jazz Festival.

Work officially began on the $2.8 million revamp in October with a blessing and sod turning ceremony led by new mayor Greg Brownless.

The council approved the development nearly a year ago following feedback from the community, iwi and water users on the proposed concept.

The contract awarded to HEB Construction has a value of $2.8 million. Deliverables include 49 metres of tidal stairs, a new 27 metre pier and a new 24 by 3 metre floating pontoon.

The council expects construction to be completed and the new facilities to be open to the public by Easter next year.
