Work Recommences at Titoki Sands Quarry


Work has resumed on the entranceway to the Titoki Sands quarry in Tamahere.

During January and February Tauwhare Road will be widened, a footpath installed and a retaining wall will be built. Other works will also be carried out to improve access to the site.

Waikato District Council Roading & Projects general manager Ian Gooden said the entranceway work will cause minor delays to motorists.

“Motorists are likely to encounter a minor delay on Tauwhare Road while work is undertaken on the quarry entranceway. We anticipate the work will be completed by the end of March, in the meantime we are asking motorists to please be patient while these works are being carried out,” he said.

Site preparation for the 51ha quarry began in early November with the removal of trees and the start of erosion and sediment control works at the quarry entrance.
