Community Boards to consider improvements to Shirley intersection

Proposed intersection improvements at the Shirley/Marshland/New Brighton/North Parade intersection will be considered at a joint Community Board meeting this Tuesday 13 February.

The recommended option is to construct safe speed platforms on each approach to the intersection, and remove the left turn slip lane from Shirley Road into Marshland Road. The primary reason for the removal of the slip lane is that they can make crossing a road feel unsafe for people walking, particularly children, the elderly and mobility or visually impaired pedestrians.

The meeting will take place at 4:30pm in the Papanui boardroom. Click through for details:
