Pauatahanui carpark upgrade
Work has begun on a pedestrian safety upgrade and tidy-up of the carpark area south of the Pauatahanui Lighthouse Cinema. The improvements were requested by residents because the carpark is becoming increasingly busy, particularly at school drop off and pick up times.
The Pauatahanui Residents Association has worked with PCC’s Village Planning Programme to develop a design that will: Extend the footpath leading past the cinema to cleanly link with the bridge to improve access, Clearly de ne pedestrian access over the bridge and better separation from traf c, Improve pedestrian access from the bridge, and across the carpark, to link with the existing Whitby walkway, Upgrade lighting in the carpark to improve safety, Improve signage.
