Feedback sought on safety work at high risk Invercargill intersection

The NZ Transport Agency is asking the community for their views on a proposed roundabout at the intersection of State Highway 1 and Elles Road in Invercargill, to increase safety and reduce crashes at this high risk intersection.

The intersection has been identified as high-risk due to the large number of crashes in the past five years: three serious crashes, two minor injury and one non-injury crash.

Transport Agency Project Manager Jason Forbes says there are several safety issues at this intersection, including the road layout, increasing numbers of heavy truck movements and a general increase in traffic growth.

“We think a roundabout is the best way to improve safety and reduce the number of crashes at this intersection. But we want community feedback on this option to see if it has support, or if the community has other ideas and alternatives we need to consider at this early stage.”

People can their say in a couple of different ways. They can attend a public information dayon Wednesday, 27 September, from 3 pm to 7 pm at the South Alive Community Hub, South City Mall, and/or complete an online feedback form . Submissions close at 5pm on Friday, 13 October 2017.

Public Housing Futures: Christmas Comes Early For Landlords

New CTU analysis of the National & ACT coalition agreement has shown the cost of returning interest deductibility to landlords is an extra $900M on top of National’s original proposal. This is because it is going to be implemented earlier and faster, including retrospective rebates from April 2023. More

Green Party: Petition To Save Oil & Gas Ban

“The new Government’s plan to expand oil and gas exploration is as dangerous as it is unscientific. Whatever you think about the new government, there is simply no mandate to trash the climate. We need to come together to stop them,” says James Shaw. More

PSA: MFAT Must Reverse Decision To Remove Te Reo

MFAT's decision to remove te reo from correspondence before new Ministers are sworn in risks undermining the important progress the public sector has made in honouring te Tiriti. "We are very disappointed in what is a backward decision - it simply seems to be a Ministry bowing to the racist rhetoric we heard on the election campaign trail," says Marcia Puru. More
