Final week to share your thoughts on safety improvements
Earlier this month we reached out to share the types of safety improvements we’re investigating to make State Highway 1 between Whangārei and Port Marsden Highway safer and more forgiving of human error.
We also shared a number of safety concerns that were previously highlighted during consultation on this section of the state highway last year.
This is the final week to share your thoughts as feedback will close on Sunday 28th November.
We acknowledge there is some frustration within the community as many may feel they’ve already given feedback about this section of the state highway.
We need to ensure we capture any feedback we may have missed during previous rounds of consultation and hear from those who may be new to the community.
Consultation is an important part of planning and designing transport infrastructure. For safety improvements projects such as this one, community feedback helps to provide us with valuable insights and local knowledge of high-risk areas where non-reported crashes, including regular ‘near-miss’ events have occurred.
We really appreciate those who have taken the time to share their thoughts on the SH1 Whangārei to Port Marsden Highway Safety Improvements project with us. Your feedback is helping us to develop the project further and we expect to be able to share more information about the design by mid-2022.
