Cr Livingstone has gone to the city council asking to have heavy vehicles rerouted to Anzac Drive, as well as a section of Breezes Rd between Wainoni Rd and Pages Rd repaired. He would like the trucks rerouted by using Anzac Drive, Wainoni Rd and Pages Rd to avoid the section of Breezes Rd that runs past Haeata Community Campus. Glenn Livingstone The matter will now be discussed at a seminar between the Coastal-Burwood Community Board and a city council road traffic engineer. But Cr Livingstone may not get the support he needs. Fellow community board member Tim Baker said he did not agree with Cr Livingstone CONCERN: City councillor Glenn Livingstone wants heavy vehicles rerouted from Breezes Rd. and it wasn’t practical to reroute the trucks. “The answer is long-term resealing that road and making it a better surface,” he said. Cr Livingstone acknowledged vehicles such as delivery trucks to Pak n Save are important to the community and need to continue travelling on the road. He said the board could classify by tonnage and the heavier trucks, such as those that travel to the Burwood Resource Recovery Park, would reroute. “I am sure we can do something,” Cr Livingstone said. The city council’s traffic count data estimates about 9000 vehicles travel on Breezes Rd between Avondale Rd and Wainoni Rd a day. Board member Linda Stewart said placing heavy vehicle restrictions on Breezes Rd was sympathetic but impractical. “To reroute heavy vehicles to Anzac Drive still means putting the problem elsewhere to create impacts elsewhere on residential streets,” she said. •Turn to page 5 •Editor’s view, page 2 Orders are being taken now for Christmas Parklands Lotto & Post Instant Kiwi Xmas Trees 20x Instant Kiwi scratchies on the tree.
