Traf­fic holdups

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

A traf­fic study on the in­ter­sec­tion be­low Bishop Viard Col­lege will be com­pleted soon.

Porirua City Coun­cil’s gen­eral man­ager of as­set man­age­ment and op­er­a­tions Peter Bai­ley told the coun­cil’s com­mit­tee meet­ing that New Zealand Trans­port Agency has nearly com­pleted the work.

Mr Bai­ley was re­spond­ing to a ques­tion from Coun­cil­lor Liz Kelly, who said holdups next to the Mo­bil sta­tion dur­ing rush hour were ‘‘chaotic’’. School chil­dren us­ing the pedes­trian cross­ing and the busy round­about off Mun­gavin bridge made the area a choke­point, Ms Kelly said.

Kapi-mana News re­ported last year that Kenepuru Dr can ex­pect a 50 per cent rise in traf­fic once Trans­mis­sion Gully is fin­ished. But a new route to Els­don could lower car num­bers us­ing Mun­gavin bridge and Ti­tahi Bay Rd.
