The community is being invited to have its say and learn more about potential pedestrian safety improvements that could be put in place on the state highway through Tāneatua, in eastern Bay of Plenty.
An open day is planned for Thursday 26 April from 2pm to 6pm at the Tāneatua War Memorial Hall.
Between 2008 and 2017 there have been 13 crashes in the 50km/h area in area in Tāneatua. Three of the crashes involved pedestrians.
NZTA Bay of Plenty Transport System Manager, Rob Campbell, says the community has told us there is a safety issue that needs to be addressed.
“We can put measures in place to reduce the likelihood of these crashes occurring but we need the community’s help.
“We’d like to encourage people to come along to let us know where they see the issues so we can formulate a plan.” Mr Campbell says.
People can provide the feedback in person at the open day or online from Thursday 26 April until Thursday 10 May 2018 at https://app.maptionnaire.com/en/4109/(external link).
