Bridges shut road By COLIN WILLIAMS The first of two closures of Akatarawa Rd for the build- ing of new bridges will begin tomorrow, and will last for several weeks. The road from Upper Hutt will be closed to vehicles from the second bridge to the summit from tomorrow until the week beginning June 19. The bridge, the second of three single-lane bridges to be replaced, is on the Waikanae side of Staglands. During the closure the business will be open as normal and accessed from the Upper Hutt side of Akatarawa Rd.Access from the bridge to the summit for walkers and cyclists is via a temporary pedestrian bridge which has been put in place. A closure of a similar duration on the scenic road for the third of the new bridges will happen later, after a period when full access to the summit and Waikanae will be available. Work on building the first bridge, before Staglands, is continuing with full vehicle access. Every effort will be made to reopen the road at an earlier date if possible, Upper Hutt City Council says. Some of the work to be carried out is weather depen- dent so the actual reopening date cannot be confirmed at this time, information given to Akatarawa residents says. The construction work, by Brian Perry Civil, will be finished by the end of the year and will produce three new bridges, all of reinforced concrete and two-lane wides. Funding for the $4.5 million replacement of the seriously dilapidated 1920s bridges is being split between the city council and Land Transport New Zea- land on a 45/55 percentage share basis. Hot rods display at swap meet Hot rod heaven: Trentham Racecourse, where Capital Rodders will hold their swap meet and car display on Sunday. Upper Hutt's Alan Wills, twin brother to event organiser Grant, will show this 1932 Ford Roadster. He has owned it for about four years and has done a total mechanical rebuild. He also owns a 1940 Ford pick-up truck and 1946 Ford Sedan, both hot rods. Photo: ROSEMARY McLENNAN By ROSEMARY McLENNAN Trentham Racecourse will be the venue for a swap meet and car display hosted by Capital Rodders hot rod club this Sunday. Co-organiser Grant Wills says it will be modelled on a similar event in Palmerston North hosted by a hot rod club there. The Trentham event will be open to vehicles of all makes rather than one type. Groups confirmed as taking part include several hot rod clubs, Morris Minor Club, Corvette Club, several European clubs and Harley motorcycle enthusiasts. There will be at least 15 trade sites for businesses in the automotive and hot rod world. Car clubs have been encouraged to use the event to do membership drives. There will also be a range of entertain- ment. Mr Wills says a racecourse is the perfect venue for such an event, with plenty of covered space for displays. Stalls to swap or sell are $10. Gates will open at 7am, admission is $5 for adults, children under-12 are free. For safety reasons children must be accompanied by an adult.
