Road works start soon on Petone’s esplanade
CONGESTION ON the Petone foreshore could be a thing of the past, if new roading improvements are successful.
The Hutt City Council is planning to take out parking, and add another lane to parts of the Esplanade, to help with peak traffic flow.
The lights on the corner of Jackson and Cuba st will be changed so that pedestrians can cross, without stopping all of the traffic.
Senior traffic engineer Wayne King says this work will start next Monday and while they’re small changes, the benefits will be great.
