UPDATED POST 2.1.13

BusShelterPhoto supplied.

About 100 new bus shelters, and objections to about 50 of them! Will they have seating installed? (perhaps the aged and infirm are required to stand for all late buses… y’know, the 15-20 minute waits) Design, what design.

Temporary road closures or road stopping?

Dunedin City Council Notices appearing in ODT 23/5/09 (page 4):

ODT 23-5-09 DCC Notices p4 (Best 1)

I’ve written to Dunedin City Council Chief Executive Jim Harland seeking public clarification on the difference between “temporary road closure” and (permanent) “road stopping” of the streets named in the Notices, in regards to established council policy and relevant legislation (see Local Government Act and Public Works Act).

My letter (rightly or wrongly, in the spirit of Council’s Road Stopping Policy) requests that any proposed road closure in the stadium area, including for the purposes of facilitating construction work and or providing alternative access to the Boat Harbour Recreation Reserve and State Highway 88, be notified for full public consultation should the real effect of any “temporary road closure” be the permanent stopping of any road.
