Urban footpath upgrades
Our urban footpath construction programme for the 2018/19 financial year will include new footpaths in four locations.
The four locations are Laughton Street from property number 38 to 46 (end of street), Spa Road (to complete the link between two existing concrete paths opposite the AC Baths), Matipo Street between property numbers 1 to 17 (between Rifle Range Road and Rangitira Street), and Lowell Place from Lake Terrace to the Great Lake Walkway.
The latter of these footpaths will allow for wheelchair users to gain access to Lake Terrace. While there is an existing footpath on the opposite side, it is too narrow for wheelchairs to pass.
