We've proposed changes in your area
In December 2019, we proposed to install a footpath on Hudson Road in Warkworth. Our proposal responded to a request from the Rodney Local Board to provide a walking connection between the existing footpaths on Albert Road and State Highway 1 (SH1). The proposal was in anticipation of a new Pak N Save development and a Park and Ride in the area. The proposal aims to improve pedestrian safety by providing a footpath to these new developments.
Changes proposed on Hudson Road
- Three new retaining walls along the footpath.
- New streetlights to be installed.
- Removal of up to 28 trees, including 12 protected trees, to make room for the footpath.
- Approximately 30 new trees to be planted along the footpath.
- Upgrades to the stormwater network.
- Reconstruction of driveways where required.
Please be assured that our contractors will speak directly with property owners where driveway or stormwater facilities are affected.
The proposed changes will proceed to the next stage of detailed planning before being implemented. 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.
Many respondents supported the proposal, noting that the new footpath will improve the safety for pedestrians.
Thank you for the support. We hope the new footpath will provide a safer walking route.
These works are planned to begin in April 2020, 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.
