Poll: Should Dunedin's George St be one-way?

Nicole Reporter from Dunedin News

Plans to convert Dunedin's George St into a one-way road were passed by the Dunedin City Council this week.

Mayor Aaron Hawkins says a one-way street provided better safety and public amenity outcomes, and was likely to attract more central government funding.

But councillor Lee Vandervis dubbed it “pedestrianisation in drag” and compared it to Christchurch’s Cathedral Square, which became a “a glue sniffers’ assembly place” when it closed to traffic.
