New Entrance Signals Positive Changes for Wintec Campus

A new entrance at Wintec’s Rotokauri campus in north Hamilton signals positive changes for the campus over the coming months, says Wintec Chief Executive Mark Flowers.

On Monday 3 December the Rotokauri campus entrance will be relocated from Avalon Drive to *Akoranga Road as a result of the Waikato expressway development.

“The public will see some changes to our Rotokauri campus over the coming months, in particular the construction of the new Engineering and Trades facility which begins next year. This campus is in the heart of the city’s industrial area and we’re keen to develop better connections with this community.”

“Through our student training restaurant Windows, our sustainable research facility and industry training facilities, we already enjoy many visitors to the campus. I’d hope to see more people enjoying the campus as a result of the new entrance, as it will be much safer to access than the current Avalon Drive entry.”

From 6.00am next Monday, the Akoranga Road entrance will be the only access point to the Rotokauri campus, with the Avalon Drive entrance to be closed permanently.

Forty new public car parking spaces will also be available on Akoranga Road. Signage directing visitors to the campus entrance will be visible from the expressway.

Wintec opened its campus on Avalon Drive in 1995. It is home to the School of Trades, School of Sport and Exercise Science and Centre for Hospitality, student training restaurant Windows, a student hub, the Centre for Industry Training and a student village and research facility. Sports House, which is occupied by Sport Waikato, is also based on the Rotokauri campus.

Wintec’s other campuses are located in the Hamilton’s central city, the Hamilton Gardens, Te Kuiti, Thames and Otorohanga.

*Footnote: Akoranga – is a Maori word meaning teaching, learning and education.

Gordon Campbell: A Govt. Christmas Bad News Dump -The Skycity Convention Center Blowout & A Negative MBIE Review

If the government really did have good tidings of great joy you can bet it wouldn’t be strewing them about at Christmas time – which is, traditionally, the dumping ground for terrible news that the government fervently hopes the public will be too distracted to notice. And so verily this Christmas Eve we learn of (a) the explosion of costs to the taxpayer and ratepayer of the vile SkyCity convention centre in Auckland and that (b) the government’s flagship MBIE “super-ministry” run by its Minister of Everything is a disaster zone of incompetence and mismanagement. MBIE is a Titanic looking for an iceberg, or so it would seem. More>>
