Safety issues along The Strand, Parnell are well known as evidenced several times in the media. Auckland Motorways have approached us with 2 projects for NZTA (New Zealand Transport Agency), both along The Strand.
The first is a signalised pedestrian crossing between no 95 and 99 The Strand, which provides the residential component across the road with a much needed safe crossing, while also linking pedestrians to Augustus Steps en-route up to Parnell Road. We have supported this proposal in our submission. Please contact our office for any further info.
The second part of the proposal involves the extension of the footpath outside the premises 137-165 The Strand, which we have rejected in our submission, on the basis of how this could impact negatively on the businesses in the area.
