AFTER ONE death and 13 serious injuries, safety improvements are to be installed on QE II Drive from Innes Rd to Burwood Rd. The section of State Highway 74 is classified as a high risk rural road. One person has died and 13 have been seriously injured along there in the past 10 years. To improve safety, the New Zealand Transport Agency is proposing to install median barriers to keep traffic apart and reduce the risk of headon crashes. It is also proposing to install flexible road safety barriers on both sides of the road to stop drivers running off the road and to protect pedestrians and cyclists using the shared pathway. “We appreciate this road is only going to get busier with new residential developments and schools opening in the area,” NZTA transport system manager Pete Connors said. The proposed safety improvements will reduce the risk of crashes, make the stretch of road safer for people who travel on it and provide a more forgiving environment for motorists who make mistakes when they are driving, he said. Work is expected to begin in early 2018. A project information sheet is being delivered to about 16,000 homes. “It outlines what we are planning to do and invites feedback until the end of August,’’ Pete Connors Mr Connors said. The work on SH74 is part of a nationwide $600 million safe road and roadsides programme which NZTA is delivering on behalf of the Government. The goal of the programme is to make many rural routes on the highway network safer over the next six years. It aims to prevent deaths and serious injury crashes through relatively simple measures such as rumble strips, road shoulder widening, safety barriers, better signage and speed limit changes.
