Kā Huanui a Tāhuna
In November 2020 a partnership was established between Queenstown Lakes District Council and Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency, along with four design and construction companies; Beca, WSP, Downer New Zealand and Fulton Hogan to deliver a number of cornerstone projects for Queenstown.
The goal is to deliver infrastructure that:
improves safety and accessibility
enables an improved public transport system
provides more options for walking and cycling
benefits the community and its visitors
Kā Huanui a Tāhuna is governed by a board made up of representatives of each of the organisations involved, along with representation from mana whenua.
The story of our name
The name Kā Huanui a Tāhuna was gifted to the alliance by mana whenua to encapsulate the significance of this union and the projects that will be delivered.
Huanui is the word used by Kāi Tahu to describe pathways and roads. Tāhuna is the original name for the ancient settlement that is now overlain with the urban form of Queenstown.
Kā Huanui a Tāhuna can be variously translated as:
The pathways of Tāhuna * The great outcomes of Tāhuna * The many fruits of Tāhuna.
