Aroha Terrace is a marvelous project that the previous council should be proud of. Jennie and my predecessor Les Birch deserve praise for their work on it. I was happy to participate in the final stages of the project to ensure residents needs were taken into consideration in the final stages.
As a result of my involvement a disability access to tram stop 5 has been recognised as important. A design to provide access to the station ramp together with the required signs and line marking has been completed and is currently being costed.
I hope to report the results of this soon and look forward to the implementation of appropriate access for those of us who require it.
