There is a roundabout being built on the St. Andrews Church corner.
After several years of asking, the NZ Transport Agency has agreed to build a roundabout as part of the rearrangement of roads necessitated by the new expressway. There was a lot of concern about the fate of the trees in the area, and the memorial gates erected to commemorate Thomas Wells, Chairman of the Cambridge Domain Board from 1880 to 1905. A public open day was held in what is now the Good Union restaurant, and Council staff allayed suspicions. Some trees do have to go, but the gates will be cleaned and reinstalled in a better location away from the traffic. The Waipa District Council is taking the opportunity presented by the building of the roundabout, to revamp that part of Te Ko Utu Park.
Here are some photos of work in progress.
