Up­grades to make roads safer

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS - By KRIS DANDO

Whit­ford Brown Ave is to get $4 mil­lion worth of up­grades, and a sec­tion of Eskdale Rd that so far has ex­isted only on plan­ners’ maps is to be built.

The road­ing de­ci­sions were made at Porirua City Coun­cil’s long-term plan de­lib­er­a­tions on June 4.

Be­cause Whit­ford Brown Ave is a ma­jor east-west con­nec­tor for the city, and will be more so once Trans­mis­sion Gully and the link roads into Porirua are built, in­vest­ment was needed, a coun­cil re­port con­cluded.

Aside from a right-hand turn into Fjord Place, which will be built in the next 12 months, in­ter­sec­tion im­prove­ments will start in about three years’ time – up­grades to Pa­pakowhai Rd ($2m) in 2018/19, Okowai Rd ($1.1m) and the Eskdale pa­per road ($900,000) in 2019/20.
