Safer roads for children

Councillor James Cootes, Transportation chair, says the safety improvements will enhance safety, particularly around intersections and crossing points used to access schools and shops.

“Work planned for next year will make things safer at the Rosetta Road and Victor Road intersection, and at the Matatua Road and Alexander Road intersection as well as in Kōwhai Grove where additional parking and a footpath is planned,” he says.

‘We want to know what you think’

“Some of our proposed changes for future years are more extensive and I’m sure will be of interest to the community – we want to know what you think so we can consider that in the future designs.”

Access and Transport Manager Glen O’Connor says this proposed future work is subject to funding from NZTA and Council and to further community input, and includes:

·       2021/22: A roundabout at Raumati Road, Matatua Road and Rosetta Road intersection and improvements at the intersection of Raumati Road and Margaret Road.

·       2022/23: Changes to Margaret Road once we can see how the changes at the new roundabout are working

And Cr Cootes says: “The drop-in sessions are a great opportunity to delve into the detail on all the proposed work and to ask questions.” .
