Hey, thanks for your feedback on our proposed footpath design.
Earlier this year we asked you what you thought about our proposed footpath design for the Ngatea main street. Overall, you told us that you liked the design, which used simple robust materials, including exposed aggregate, with coloured inlays in selected areas.
Now we know we’re on the right path, we’re hoping to start building the footpath in July – depending on contractor availability.
Footpath starts when kerb and channel upgrade complete
We expect NZ Transport Agency will have finished the SH2 road renewal and kerb and channel upgrade work by then. Building the footpath at the same time as the roadworks would have caused too much disruption, raised safety issues, and slowed the roadworks project down.
The aim is to replace the whole length of the main street footpath in 100m sections.
We’ll work with the contractor to confirm timeframes closer to the project start date.
