Work to improve the footpaths and traffic on Scroggs Hill and
Seaview Rds is expected to be completed by the end of the
Dunedin City Council transport operations project engineer
Michael Harrison said the tender for the construction works
would close on May 7.
The estimates for the contract so far indicated the work
would be done by December, which was ''good news'' and bode
well for some of the stage two work being done in the 2014-15
Consultation earlier this year on stage two of the project,
which includes improving footpaths and road crossings around
the rest of Brighton, resulted in four written submissions,
Mr Harrison said.
Two submissions supported the project as a whole and
reinforced the need for separated, sealed pedestrian areas.
Two questioned the footpath proposal for Queen St and one
submission requested that the Brighton Rd bridge remain
unaltered in width and appearance.
Similar issues were raised at a public meeting in January, as
well as concerns about the way public transport used Queen St
and some questions on the proposals to improve the Bath
St-Queen St intersection.
Some at the meeting had concerns about the open ditches in
parts of Queen St.
Others wanted a connected network so they could walk around
