Creek pavers to be fixed af­ter com­plaint

Kapi-Mana News - - WHAT’S ON -

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.

Un­even pavers in Can­nons Creek will be fixed this week.
