Councillor Don Palmer Providing Local Leadership & Working for You
The Aroha Terrace reconstruction is nearing completion.
It is looking particularly good and I have received a number of compliments from residents, which I have passed onto Council Staff responsible for this project.

The remaining line marking (missed due a parked vehicle) on the northern side and cut offs on the southern side will be installed by the end of this month

Consultation with a number of residents between Laught Avenue and East Avenue have or will be consulted on time limit parking scheduled.

Council Staff have also collected data recently on traffic speed along this road and found speed to be similar to that recorded back in March 2009-85% speed was 48.6 km/h. Both surveys were based on similar and significant traffic counts. This information has been passed onto SAPOL.

A protuberance required near either Selkirk or Gray Street (where road widens) to slow traffic is being investigated for either local narrowing or alternatively a section of median followed. Current observatiosn suggets it may not be needed however.
