The Spiers Street redevelopment has now been completed.
With the long awaited landscaping for this project is now complete.
This street is now in my opinion a much better street than before I was elected. I remember as a pedestrian often being concerned about traversing this street.
It is not without it’s problems however. A number of nearby residents have indicated concerns about the narrowing of the entrance at the northern end. This is a concern and clearly is something that needs monitoring.
The vast majority of traffic using this road would be locals so I would hope that any issue here will disappear as the locals become used to the new configuration. This assumes of course that someone not used to the intersection will not have a problem with it as they will not have to change previous habits of maneuvering.
As I said earlier however we do need to monitor this.
