We proposed changes in your area
We proposed installing a signalised pedestrian crossing near the intersection of State Highway 16 (Main Road) and Matua Road. This proposal is needed to allow pedestrians to cross Main Road (SH16) in the vicinity of the Huapai Shops.
Why the changes are needed
There are no existing crossings in this area, making the road hazardous for pedestrians, especially for elderly and vulnerable road users. Demand to cross at this location has increased greatly recently, due to the new medical centre and shops that have opened on the southern side of the road.
The works will include widening portions of the footpath to shorten the crossing distance, and the installation of new pram crossings to align the crossing.
