Warkworth facilities set for upgrade

Construction of two new public toilets in Warkworth is due to start soon.

The toilets next to the library in the Warkworth town centre are being remodelled, with work expected to start at the end of March and take six weeks.

The old toilet will be closed during construction and interim facilities will be provided.

The other facilities are being built as part of a makeover of the car park at Kowhai Park. Three unisex cubicles will be installed near the park’s Matakana Road entrance, along with the relocated campervan dump station.

The old toilet will only be demolished once the new toilet is fully operational.

The car park is also being moved further back from State Highway 1.

It will be slightly smaller but will still have 16 marked car parking spaces. Footpaths will be upgraded, with a new path leading to a safer pedestrian crossing point on Matakana Road.

The old footbridge that crosses the stream near the car park entrance will be replaced with a new precast concrete bridge. This work is necessary because the bridge’s steel beams are badly decayed.

Work is expected to start in early April and take about two months. During this time the old car park will be closed.

The park’s new facilities have taken into account any possible future widening of the Hill Street intersection.
