Wider & safer footpath in the Bay

June 4, 2009

footpathLots of action with recent roadworks in the Bay. After the Moana Road storm water rebuild last year, Telecom/Chorus deposited a green box close to the junction of Moana & the main road – to improve the broadband network.

Hutt City decided to improve the safety of the pedestrian crossing at this same junction, by moving it 4 metres to the south. In addition, they plan to widen the footpath into the roadway, either side of the crossing. This makes folk more visible whilst waiting to cross.

The Council approached the local business owners along the strip, to consider continuing a wider footpath in front of the Cafes with a cost sharing model. 

Voila – shortly this project will be complete & the Cafes will be able to offer dining on the footpath – a welcome option for early morning winter sun!
