As a Council we want all neighbourhoods to have a safe environment to live and play so we're installing raised safety platforms in the Huntington and St James area to create safer places for pedestrians and cyclists to cross the road.
The platforms will be installed at key locations between Wairere Drive and Thomas Road, connecting with the Mangaiti Gully bridge and shared off-road path through the park. It also supports a speed limit change from 50km/h to 40km/h in the Huntington and St James area, which took effect on 5 April 2021.
Hamilton's flat landscape makes it ideal for people of all ages and fitness levels to bike or walk and as a Council, we're investing in projects like these because we want to make sure we remain a great, liveable city in years to come.
This work is expected to be completed in August 2021.
