Further safety measures soon to be added to intersection
Following feedback from the community, further safety measures will be added as soon as practicable to the Kiddle Drive / Arrowsmith Avenue / Napier Road intersection.
This includes the addition of rumble strips on the approach to the stop signs on Napier Road.
Infrastructure manager Denis Lewis said additional signage had already been planned, following the removal of the digital sign boards, however with the feedback from the community last week, council had decided to also add rumble strips to the intersection.
“We have listened to the community and will be looking to add rumble strips to Napier Road along with 50km/h road markings to Kiddle Drive, to remind drivers of the reduction in speed limit.
“Since the change in priority last October, we have also added larger stop signs and additional roadmarkings on Napier Road, where drivers are required to stop.
“We will also be looking at what further options we can do as part of next year’s Long-term Plan – including the option of a roundabout,” he said.
