Road safety fund­ing pulled

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

NZ Trans­port Agency has with­drawn its fund­ing for a road safety co-or­di­na­tor in Porirua.

Porirua City coun­cil­lor Litea Ah Hoi raised the is­sue of the city not hav­ing a ded­i­cated road safety co­or­di­na­tor at last week’s Te Komiti meet­ing.

She wanted to know how it would have an im­pact on the city and was wor­ried some­one might get hurt or killed with­out a pro­gramme in place.

Coun­cil chief ex­ec­u­tive Gary Simp­son said the agency had with­drawn fund­ing be­cause ‘‘ they were not happy with our de­liv­ery’’.

The coun­cil was work­ing with the agency to find an al­ter­na­tive so­lu­tion, he said.
