Keep on truck­ing

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Trucks are driv­ing up Pa­pakowhai Rd to avoid the of­ten-con­gested Pare­mata round­about when trav­el­ling north to State High­way 58, Porirua City Coun­cil­lor Bron­wyn Kropp says. The road was vir­tu­ally res­i­den­tial and not de­signed for large ve­hi­cles, es­pe­cially with lots of cars usu­ally parked on the road­side, Ms Kropp told coun­cil­lors at last Thurs­day’s Te Komiti meet­ing. The coun­cil’s gen­eral man­ager of as­set man­age­ment and op­er­a­tions Peter Bai­ley said there was noth­ing the coun­cil could do to stop trucks us­ing the road. The coun­cil had the power only to limit where ve­hi­cles could park, Mr Bai­ley said.
