With the first stage of removal of Winton’s well-known trees completed the board would love to hear your ideas about different ways these roadside spaces can be revitalised.
The trees are being removed because they are growing up through the power lines and the roots are damaging underground utilities. The ongoing costs of these challenges are a factor in the decision to remove the trees.
Stage 1 has been completed with the removal of trees on Great North Road between Clyde Street and Eglinton Street
Stage 2 is the removal of the trees from Eglinton Street to the Catholic Church and is scheduled for 2022-2023
Stage 3 is the removal of the trees from the Catholic Church to De Joux Road and is scheduled for 2023-2024
Any options submitted for consideration would be subject to consultation and agreement from Waka Kotahi – NZ Transport Agency.
