Updates and information for residents and businesses near the Te Kaha Multi-Use Arena site.

Major concrete pours

The next major concrete pour for the western stand will occur on Wednesday 31 May 2023. Works will begin at 2am, with the concrete placement expected to be complete by 9am.

The concrete will be poured as part of Te Kaha’s substructure and foundation work.

The concrete trucks will enter and exit the site from Barbadoes Street, to minimise traffic noise during the outlined timeframe.

Contractors will establish the plant – concrete pumps, trucks, lighting towers and concrete vibrators – in the middle of the site to minimise noise.

Where practical, contractors will use a range of other noise mitigation measures. These include setting up the plant during daylight hours, using equipment that is quieter, and using noise barriers.

Weather permitting, the final major concrete pour is expected to take place in June.
