Ridge Road safety network improvements
We are currently working on safety improvements, with a specific focus on the eastern end of Ridge Road, Pookeno.
This area has steep drops and high-volume heavy commercial vehicles accessing quarry and cleanfill sites, presenting potential risks.
To address these concerns, we have implemented interventions at the highest risk locations. Additionally, we have reduced the speed limit to further support these safety measures.
November 2023 - Design is completed. Shoulder widening and Gabion installation is in progress with a few of the guardrail and shoulder widening sections completed. Work is progressing well, with sign installation due to start mid December 2023.
