We're making changes in your area
In October 2019, we proposed a new footpath along Great South Road between Abattoir Lane and Bell Avenue in Mt Wellington. Our proposal responded to a request from the local community to close the gap between existing footpaths.
Why the changes are needed
The proposed upgrade will improve walking connections along this section of Great South Road and to the existing bus stop nearby.
We have made minor changes to the design based on community feedback. Changes include widening the footpath at the bus stop to allow more space for people waiting for the bus.
Thank you to everyone who responded to our proposal and gave us the chance to better understand your community and concerns. A summary of your feedback and our responses to community questions is below.
We received positive feedback noting the proposal would create a safer connection for people using the footpath.
Thank you for your feedback and glad to hear the proposal will improve the safety for people walking in this area.
- Suggestion to extend the footpath at the bus stop to allow for more space for people waiting. Thank you for this suggestion, we will widen the footpath at the bus stop to provide enough space for the users. Please see the updated drawings.
These works are planned before June 2021, but we will let you know if there are further changes or delays.
Our contractors will send notices to affected residents 48-hours prior to construction starting.
