We're making changes in your area
In March 2020, we proposed to upgrade the pedestrian crossings at the Elliot Street and East Street intersection in Papakura. Our proposal is in response to the frequent damage to traffic light poles at this location due to large trucks mounting the corners. We recommend relocating the traffic lights and reinstating the kerb at each corner. This aims to provide a clearer space for truck turning movements, so they no longer mount the corner, and in turn improve the safety of people waiting to cross.
The proposed changes will proceed to the next stage of detailed planning before being implemented. Thank you to those who responded to our proposal. We received positive feedback from respondents.
These works are planned between April – May 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.
