Inner links' could ease Queenstown congestion

Options for new road links between Frankton Rd, Shotover St/Gorge Rd (roundabout pictured) and Man St were explored during an open day at the Queenstown Lakes District Council yesterday.

Residents, parishioners, landowners and Plunket and rugby members asked questions of council staff and consultants in chambers in the latest phase of the council's bid to ease traffic congestion in the town centre while making it a more pleasant environment for pedestrians and cyclists.

''Queenstown inner links'' open day information is posted on the council's website.

A summary of feedback will be reported with recommendations to councillors.
