Meet­ing on road safety sched­uled

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Im­prov­ing the lay­out of car parks, a taxi rank and the round­about at Can­nons Creek shops will be dis­cussed at a pub­lic meet­ing tomorrow.

Res­i­dents are in­vited to the meet­ing, which will gather pub­lic opin­ion on how road­ing and park­ing could be bet­ter de­signed. It will be hosted by Porirua City Coun­cil and the Can­nons Creek Res­i­dents’ and Ratepay­ers’ As­so­ci­a­tion.

The cur­rent road­ing lay­out could be dan­ger­ous for pedes­tri­ans and mo­torists alike, said Jon Black­shaw, act­ing chair­man of the as­so­ci­a­tion.

‘‘You have a few mo­ments where you have your heart in your mouth,’’ he said.

Cars tended to hoon around the round­about, which was hedged on two sides by pedes­trian cross­ings, Mr Black­shaw said.

Peo­ple un­able to at­tend the meet­ing can com­ment on road­ing changes on the res­i­dents’ as­so­ci­a­tion’s Face­book group.
