One obvious problem is going to be traffic circulation as there are only three entrance/exit points and two of these will only allow left turns going in or out. The Marae Lane entrance/exit will allow dual direction, but when peak hour trains arrive and the passengers go to or from their cars, things could get rather jammed.
The council plans to buy 5 large specimen trees to supplement the existing trees around the periphery, including the large heritage-listed pohutukawa.
Space has been left for the mobile barber shop which is popular with some locals — this is the little rectangle near the centre-top.
We’re pleased to note that security will be provided by CCTV cameras.
