Speeding up of $110,000 in roading improvements approved

The Dunedin City Council has ticked off bringing forward $110,000 in Mosgiel roading improvements.

The council, at its meeting last week, approved speeding up roading work - from 2015-16 to 2014-15 - because of the unexpected pace of development of Syd Brown's Highland Park subdivision.

The infrastructure services committee had earlier voted in favour of the work, but it required final approval from the full council.

Council transportation group manager Gene Ollerenshaw said in a report the subdivision was placing ''significant demands'' on the southern side of Factory Rd, Wingatui Rd south of Factory Rd and the intersection between the two.
