Now here’s a question

Why would there be two reasonably large Christmas trees sitting on the greenbelt beside the old Leamington Factory on the corner of Carlyle Street, Rotoorangi Road and Lamb Street in June?

Rotoorangi Road and Lamb Street

Cambridge NZ to Lake Karapiro cycleway-walkway Ctd.

The Cambridge to Lake Karapiro portion of Te Awa – the Great New Zealand River Ride (Ngaruawahia to Horahora). Although yet to appear in the Waikato portion of Te Araroa the national cycleway-walkway. The westerly end begins at the intersection of Carlyle Street where Browning Street becomes Maungatautari Road in Leamington. Some 6km in length, give or take, and running alongside Maungatautari Road (and the Waikato River – a paddock or so to the north) through Pukekura to Judd Lane at Lake Karapiro. The eastern portion at the Karapiro Hydro dam end is interesting – a cantilevered boardwalk arrangement below the place called Crows Nest (Redoubt) or Te Tiki o te Ihingarangi just as you drop down to the dam.

Welcome to Cambridge New Zealand – WRCH2010 Park & Ride Blue

Welcome to Cambridge New Zealand

Corner Lamb and Carlyle Streets Leamington
A delightful contrast in building styles. The portacom? arrived in the past few of days and will no doubt service Park & Ride Blue (northern and western traffic) for the 2010 Rowing World Championshipswhich I take to be the paddock to our right. Silage has been harvested and the big green bales removed this morning – a very productive form of grooming. Beyond – the ubiquitous Rosswood Contour Barn – we have always referred to them simply as Rosswood hay barns – manufactured right here in the heart of Leamington. Beyond the former Leamington Dairy Factory (c.1910 – I might have this date slightly wrong). We are on the Cambridge greenbelt on the corner of  Lamb Street, Rotoorangi Road and Carlyle Street in Leamington, New Zealand.

ALL northern traffic from Auckland, Hamilton and the western areas is expected to use this facility. Traffic coming from the north on State Highway 1 will be diverted down State Highway 1B at Taupiri and will then proceed towards Tamahere to Mystery Creek Road. Here, Auckland vehicles will meet Hamilton traffic which will be advised to use State Highway 3. The routes will converge and proceed down Kaipaki Road to the parking area.

Cambridge – Karapiro cycleway walkway – ribbon cutting
