Taupo East Arterial Route (ETA)
As subcontractor to Fulton Hogan Projects our main activity involved the initialising work for the major earthworks on the East Taupo Arterial bypass, the new 16km of highway runs along the eastern outskirts of Taupo (from Wairakei to Taupo Airport). This work included the set up of the environment controls, major culverts and the supply and delivery of aggregate from our quarry (Taupo Scoria Ltd).
One of our teams on the project also carried out earthworks on the intersection of SH1 and SH5 forming the roundabout at the northern end of the job (Wairakei). This work involved precise planning and controls to ensure traffic flow is not disrupted.
