We’re excited to announce the opening our new state-of-the-art Testing Station in Rolleston, Selwyn, Christchurch.
We’re excited to announce the opening our new state-of-the-art Testing Station in Rolleston, Selwyn. Sean Stevens CEO of VINZ say’s “the opening couldn’t have happened at a better time with the expansion of the new Christchurch Southern Motorway scheme, which is set to be completed in 2021”.
The road works will improve access to the Izone in Rolleston by extending 7.5km of road in built up areas from Hornby, Templeton to Robinsons Road.
Sean Stevens says the “Izone is already attracting a range of organisations to the area, including automotive businesses, to restaurants, and cafes as well as being one of the fastest growing residential growth towns”.
“Our new facility will be the flagship of the South, which gives VINZ the flexibility to service both residential and business customers in the local area” says Sean.
Sean would like to thank everyone involved who has worked hard to bring this project to launch during these unprecedented times. “We look forward to a very successful start” says Sean.
The new Testing Station features two dedicated inspection pits for our heavy vehicle and COFB customers as well as a separate lane for WOF and Light Vehicle Compliance inspections.
The Station supports WOF inspections for Light vehicle, Motorcycles and Trailers, as well transactional services such as Registration and RUC. It also has specific lanes for Heavy vehicles for COF Trucks, COF rental and Entry inspections on both Light and Heavy vehicles.
The dedicated Heavy lane inspection area allows VINZ to inspect a whole truck and trailer with minimal movement of the vehicle. All traffic including Trucks enter from Hynds Drive, are inspected, then depart from Link Drive, providing a seamless drive through experience for our customers.
VINZ Rolleston is located at 47 Link Drive and the new site offers the full range of VINZ’s products and services, with a focus on heavy vehicle inspections and certification and NZTA transactional services.
