Byron Rd: What next?

Those of you who live on Byron Rd were asked for feedback regarding the replacement of (replacing with Watts Profile speed humps) or enhancement (addition cushions on the existing slow points) of  the speed limitation devices currently installed in the street. This matter, as many of you know, has been a point of contention among residents for quite some time. The alternate option was to make no changes to the existing arrangements. Just over half of you took the time to have your say. Unfortunately, there was no decisive  vote for any one of the above options. However, the additional feedback from residents has made it quite clear that additional work needed to be done near the Princess Margaret Playground to further slow traffic in this area. Staff has recommended that some road narrowing occur  and the bitumen to be treated to look as though it is paved. Hopefully, this will enhance safety for the families who use the playground. Residents who responded to the consultation will be informed of the outcome directly by staff.

    Yes, the corner near the playground is bad. Dangerous when travelling west even at 40kph. So hard to take this corner and dangerous for people crossing the road near the playground; as they do.
