Im­proved safety and park­ing for Can­nons Creek

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

The Can­nons Creek shop­ping cen­tre’s park­ing area is be­ing up­graded and a slow zone cre­ated through the vil­lage to im­prove safety. Work is ex­pected to start in April that will see the shop­ping cen­tre car park re­con gured, with one en­trance closed and the taxi stand moved to im­prove traf c and pedes­trian safety. The up­grade was sparked by com­mu­nity de­mand and the Can­nons Creek Res­i­dents and Ratepay­ers As­so­ci­a­tion has worked with the Coun­cil’s Vil­lage Plan­ning Pro­gramme and the Road Safety team to de­velop a plan. All of the fol­low­ing works will help cre­ate a nat­u­ral slow zone around the shop­ping cen­tre mak­ing it safer for pedes­tri­ans and mo­torists. Two pub­lic in­for­ma­tion ses­sions will be held in the Can- nons Creek Li­brary on Fe­bru­ary 26 and 27 from 1pm to 3pm. Plans will be avail­able and Coun­cil staff will be able to an­swer ques­tions about the project.
