Vandalism to gates on John Wilson Ocean Dr, in Dunedin, has
ranged from people using bolt cutters to break padlocks to
others attaching chains between the gate and their car,
tearing it from its hinges.
Use of John Wilson Ocean Dr, in Dunedin, by pedestrians,
cyclists and schools was increasing, Living Streets Dunedin
convener Judy Martin said last night, and the road could
become "a promenade that everyone enjoys".
The Dunedin City Council is to consult its lawyers over the
continued closure to motorists of John Wilson Ocean Dr after
concerns were raised in a letter to yesterday's community
development committee meeting.
