SILVERTON ROAD CAR PARK REDEVELOPMENT

The existing Silverton Road car park between Seddon and Kenny Streets in Waihi is in need of an upgrade. Problems are being experienced with vehicle damage, pedestrian/vehicle safety and parking capacity.

The report outlined the identified issues and proposed measures to improve the parking needs and general safety in the area based on completed investigations.

All three options presented provided a similar number of car parks at a similar cost.

It is expected that an improved traffic flow would be achieved with Options 2 and 3 due to one way flow and angle parking bays compared with more immediate access to the parking area with the two way flow which was shown in Option 1.

The initial cost estimates indicate similar cost for the three options in the order of $100,000. A detailed cost estimate will be done during the design phase of the project.

Staff proposed to workshop the options presented to consider financial implications. A staged construction was suggested over 2 financial years to reduce the financial impact on Ward funds.

RESOLVED

THAT the Ward approves in principle the re-development of the Silverton Road car park in Waihi, and

THAT Option 1 is preferred due to greater functionality and flexibility, and

THAT the funding options for the car park re-development in Silverton Road be reported back to the ward at the earliest opportunity.
