Franklin Local Board is upgrading Stadium Drive as part of the Pukekohe Town Centre Revitalisation Project.
Local board member Murray Kay, who is also Chair of the Pukekohe Town Centre Revitalisation Committee working on the designs, says the streetscape upgrades will provide better pedestrian connections with enjoyable, accessible and safe walking paths through and around the town centre.
The project builds on the previous streetscape improvements made around the town centre by Franklin Local Board. “As well as improved pedestrian footpaths, lighting and seating, there will be a high-quality, high-amenity pedestrian plaza outside the ECOLight Stadium for event-goers,” says Murray Kay.
“We want Pukekohe Town Centre to be a positive and lively environment for shoppers, diners and stadium event-goers. These upgrades are an important part of that vision.”
Projects completed under the Pukekohe Town Centre Revitalisation Project include upgrades on King Street, Roulston Street, Edinburgh Street, Hall Street, Massey Avenue, Tobin Street and West Street.
The project has also delivered the revitalised Pukekohe Town Square and the relocation of the Possum Bourne statue.
