The long-awaited toilet block upgrade will begin in a few weeks. While work goes on two Portaloos will be in place for public use.
Back in November 2021 we wrote: Plans for new toilet block at Hank Edwards Reserve. Now we have an update from Stephan Titze, Horowhenua District Council, Parks and Property Project Lead:
The contract for the toilet upgrade has been awarded and Lee Builders from Palmerston North will start with the rehabilitation work by mid – end March.
The construction will start with the demolition of the male toilet block which means from mid- March 2022 onwards the toilets as such will no longer be accessible for the public. However, as discussed and agreed I have allowed for the provision of two portable toilets for the time being.
the current material shortage has an impact on this development (later start) and will most likely have also it’s impact in later stage. However for now we can’t say how big the impact will be
It’ll be a relief once this work is complete and locals and visitors alike can benefit from a clean, modern, well-lit, safe and accessible public toilet.
