The new car park facility at the sprawling Sri Kalgidhar Sahib Gurdwara complex in Takanini (70 Takanini Road) providing for 250 additional cars opened on March 5, 2016 in the presence of a number of prominent people from various communities.

Funded by the Akarana Community Trust, the Project, estimated to cost more than $1.5 million, will take the total number of parking spaces within the Complex to 450 vehicles, one of the largest for a private organisation in the country.

National MP D Jiang Jing was the chief guest at the opening ceremony, which was attended by Matt Robson, Legal Advisor to the Supreme Sikh Society of New Zealand (which owns and manages Sri Kalgidhar Sahib Gurdwara and the Gurdwara Sahib Otahuhu), community leaders and a large number of men, women and children of the Sikh community in New Zealand.

Important development

Society spokesman Daljit Singh said that the Car Project is an important development in improving the services and facilities at the Gurdwara Complex.

Weekends, holiday and festive occasions witness even more people. There was therefore a need to construct addition car park facility. We are grateful to the Akarana Community Trust, our members and volunteers for making this Project a reality. We now have facility for 450 vehicles to be parked within the Complex,” he said.

Occupying 8.6 acres of land, the original estimated cost of the Sri Kalgidhar Sahib Gurdwara Complex, when it opened on March 13, 2005, was $8 million.
