We Say/You Say: Safer Streets?

Thomas Campbell Reporter from Hamilton Press

Kia ora Hamilton,

Do you want to see the Innovating Streets initiative rolled out around your neighbourhood?

A trial by the Hamilton City Council to close off two streets to vehicles will soon be over.

The $902,000 trial ends on July 3. It currently sees the closure of a portion of Ward St and completely closes Rostrevor St to traffic.

Some business owners and staff made their dissatisfaction known at a meeting with council staff after experiencing a loss of custom.

Advocates for the trial included Bike Waikato chairman Richard Porter, who said that cyclists were making the most of no traffic.

What do you think? Share your thoughts below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comments featured in the Hamilton Press.
