Working with you - route options
We’re currently working with residents to determine the route that part of the circuit will take.
There are two options:
Route option A would take the circuit along Pearsons and Old Taupo Roads.
Route option B would take the circuit through private land running alongside Arapuni Road – refer to the map above.
We’re currently consulting with landowners to negotiate property easements for Route option B. Should we be unable to secure the route for option B, we will default to option A. The route will be confirmed in early 2021 to allow detailed design to continue.
