Right turn for Kawerau trust
A boost today for a Bay of Plenty Māori trust with Kawerau getting $2 million from the Provincial Growth Fund.
The Kawerau Putauaki Industrial development is a multi-phase project to develop infrastructure, starting with building a right-hand turn bay off State Highway 34.
Infrastructure Minister Shane Jones says Kawerau has always been an industry-based town and upgrading the transport and associated infrastructure will help attract new businesses and create the right environment for existing companies to invest and expand.
Future phases include building additional road and rail infrastructure around the industrial subdivision and constructing a container terminal to service eastern Bay of Plenty.
He says it’s a good example of Government partnering with Maori, business and the community for economic growth.
