Raumati South village gets a new pedestrian crossing
Work is expected to commence next week to establish a raised pedestrian crossing on Poplar Avenue outside the Raumati Social Club and Gatsby Tapas.
Infrastructure Services Group Manager Sean Mallon says the raised pedestrian crossing will replace the existing zebra crossing and will help create a slow zone through the Raumati South Village.
“This work is being done in conjunction with reviewing the speed limit in this area and forms part of a series of safety improvements and traffic calming measures that are being implemented on Poplar Avenue.”
Traffic management will be in place at all times and people moving through or visiting the Raumati South Village are encouraged to extra care around the construction site. During this time there will be a temporary pedestrian crossing established slightly to the east to allow the next crossing to be constructed
Work to establish the crossing is expected to take approximately four weeks.
