Feedback on footpath renewal project extended


24 April 2003

Extended closing date for Aucklanders' feedback
on footpath renewal project

Auckland City Council has decided to extend the closing date for Aucklanders’ feedback on footpath renewal project until Friday 2 May 2003.

Council is preparing a new policy to solve its current backlog of footpath maintenance and improve footpaths throughout the city. Ratepayers and residents have been given the opportunity to give their feedback on materials to be used since 11 April 2003.

Aucklanders have responded positively to this initiative. They have welcomed the idea and some of them have asked the council to extend the closing date.

At the intersection of Sandringham and Balmoral Roads, nine footpath samples can be reviewed (ordinary concrete, oxide concrete, black pebble concrete, red chip concrete, black asphalt, red slurry asphalt, asphalt with red chip, clay and concrete pavers, stone pavers).

These samples will be removed on 29 April but comments can be received until 2 May 2003 at www.aucklandcity.govt.nz/footpathproject, by calling our call centre ph (09) 379 2020, by visiting a community library or by visiting service centres at Greys Avenue or Graham Street.

Feedback will be reported to the Transport Committee and be considered in conjunction with recommended footpath materials from the draft footpath policy.

The new footpath policy is due to be adopted in July 2003.

Yet the desire for change was in the majority, across the country..>>>More
