We Say/You Say: Rectifying your roads

Thomas Campbell Reporter from Piako Post

Hi Neighbours,

Which roads in your area are in need of an upgrade?

Six roads around the Waikato region are getting upgraded by Waka Kotahi (NZTA) with multiple safety features set to be installed.

As part of the upgrade, sections of multiple State Highways will be fitted with rumble strips, improved roadside signs and long-life line markings.

Waka Kotahi's Director of Regional Relationships David Speirs says while traffic volumes may be lower on these roads, the risk still exists for motorists using back-country roads.

“...rumble strips can reduce the total number of crashes by around 25 percent and fatal run-off-road crashes by up to 42 percent.”

The government plans to slash the number of deaths on New Zealand roads by 40 per cent over the next 10 years, with these upgrades part of its commitments to the Road Safety Strategy.

Share your roading wish list below and please remember to type NFP if you don't want your comments featured in the Piako Post.
