Community Board votes for lights on Harewood Road

At the meeting on 17 August, the Waimāero/Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board: heard public deputations on the Harewood/Gardiners/Breens intersection; heard from staff who presented a report on the intersection, which included a summary of public feedback from the recent consultation, and an independent safety assessment; and then unanimously passed resolutions to recommend

  1. traffic signals at the intersection
  2. staff investigation of funding for traffic signals, and
  3. revocation of previous approvals and resolutions that would conflict with the implementation of lights (which includes a Council resolution passed in 2010 but never implemented, to reduce the road from two lanes to one lane in each direction).

The Board’s recommendations will go to an upcoming meeting of the Council’s Infrastructure, Transport, and Environment Committee, which in turn will make a recommendation to the full Council. The full minutes of the meeting are available at:
