Creek pavers to be fixed after complaint
Pavers that have lifted up from the ground next to the taxi stand at the Cannons Creek shops will be fixed this week, according to Porirua City Council.
The problem area is close to the Mungavin Ave side of the shopping precinct.
After two complaints that the pavers were becoming a tripping hazard, a council spokeswoman said the problem, which was a recent one, would be remedied by relaying the uneven bricks. The lifting may be related to work done on the shopping centre parking area and taxi stand in 2014.
The parking area was upgraded and the taxi stand moved, partly in an effort to improve traffic and pedestrian safety.
Pavers were put in specifically to make it a pedestrianfriendly area. The council is about to consider its annual plan 2016/17. To receive email updates with more information once it is available and specifics on how to comment, register interest through the link on the council’s annual plan page. The projected rate increase for Porirua for the 2016/17 year is 5.03 per cent. Council officers are looking at areas where savings can be made. The annual plan will be finalised as a draft budget at the end of March.
