Plenty go­ing on in Can­nons Creek

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Can­nons Creek has been a hive of ac­tiv­ity re­cently, with a safety up­grade of the shop­ping cen­tre’s park­ing area and a re­fur­bish­ment of the pub­lic toi­let. The safety up­grade is nearly nished and has seen the shop­ping cen­tre carpark re­con gured fol­low­ing the re­lo­ca­tion of the cen­tral taxi stand. The carpark’s Mun

gavin Ave exit has been closed and re­placed with a two-way en­try and exit (left-hand turn only) onto War­spite Ave. The project also in­volved de­vel­op­ing a pedes­trian cross­ing on Mun­gavin Ave, a new round­about at the in­ter­sec­tion of Mun­gavin Ave and Bed­ford St, and a taxi rank on Mun­gavin Ave. The work has cre­ated a slow zone through the vil­lage and was sparked by com­mu­nity de­mand. The Can­nons Creek Res­i­dents and Ratepay­ers As­so­ci­a­tion worked with Porirua City Coun­cil’s Vil­lage Plan­ning Pro­gramme and the Road Safety team on the re­design. Mean­while, the lo­cal pub­lic toi­let has been given an artis­tic touch. The three-cu­bi­cle Ex­eloo has been ren­o­vated in­side and out and has large colour­ful pho­to­graphs adorn­ing the doors.
