Archaeologists have taken a break from the Durham Street site with no items of interests discovered in excavations.
The excavation and base for the pavement at the South end of Durham Street outside Smiths Motorcycles, Gengy’s and Eastern HiGi has been progressing well. Work is continuing in this area this week.
Tauranga City Council says they want to remind everyone the businesses in the area are still open.
“From food to furniture, to your various transportation needs and more, it’s all right here on Durham Street.”
There is just one concrete slab left to pour in the intersection next week. The curved concrete nib between the new roadway and footpath will then be boxed and poured.
The concrete will need a month to completely cure before traffic can use this area.
They laying of paving stones outside the Work and Income office is well underway. The remaining pavement work on the west side of the intersection is scheduled to be complete within the next two weeks.
The final piece of stormwater drainage work on the intersection will be completed next week.
The lane from Durham Street to Bongard Centre has re-opened while the work from the University to Cameron Road section is shaped up.
Work on the lane from the University of Waikato to Cameron Road was underway again last week as the nib kerb adjacent to Craigs was laid, and the laneway pavement has been excavated in preparation for new pavement aggregate to be laid and asphalted.
