Feilding Industrial Area Growth Works and Turners Road Extension
Council has identified opportunities for growth in the existing industrial area off Kawakawa Road, Darragh Road, and Turners Road, as well as an extension of the industrial area towards the Ōroua River. This area is known as Growth Precinct 5. Works are underway with sections of water mains and trade waste lines installed in 2021/22.
This work includes the construction of a 6m wide road from Turners Road to Kawakawa Road, which is a key stage in developing this area. This will enable access to 24 hectares of high-quality industrial land. This project was expected to begin in 2020/21 but a number of external factors have resulted in delays. The undergrounding of powerlines is planned to begin before June 2022. In 2022/23, Council plans to extend the section of road off Kawakawa Road to the stormwater drain.
