Pa­pakowhai park­ing safer

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Pa­pakowhai chil­dren will find the trip to and from school a lot safer with the in­tro­duc­tion of new park­ing re­stric­tions ap­proved by Te Komiti last Thurs­day.

The park­ing re­stric­tions com­ple­ment a kea cross­ing be­ing in­tro­duced to help Pa­pakowhai School chil­dren nav­i­gate across Tweed Rd.

There will also be park­ing re­stric­tions in­tro­duced at Taka­puwahia to help keep a busy in­ter­sec­tion flow­ing smoothly, and to cre­ate a per­ma­nent 10-minute park­ing zone along­side a popular Lyt­tel­ton Ave cof­fee cart in Porirua’s CBD.

‘‘Th­ese changes make good road safety sense, par­tic­u­larly for the chil­dren of Pa­pakowhai School,’’ Te Komiti chair­man Euon Mur­rell said.

‘‘The new kea cross­ing will be eas­ily seen by ve­hi­cles and pedes­tri­ans.’’
