Harewood/Gardiners/Breens intersection: process explanation and news update

Harewood/Gardiners/Breens intersection: a process explanation and news update. Decision-making around options for the intersection is passing through three layers of local government: first the responsible Community Board; then the Council's Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee (ITE); and then the full Council.
In the first stage, the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board recommended that the ITE recommends that the Council approves traffic lights. Yesterday the ITE committee met, but did not make any recommendation, instead simply referring the report and Community Board recommendation to the Council meeting of 12 September 2019. Councillor Aaron Keown, a strong advocate for traffic lights, is a member of the ITE committee but was absent from today's meeting.
