Paraparaumu-Raumati Community Board Members Guy Burns and Bernie Randall welcome the news that work will start this week on the construction of a Ratanui/Mazengarb Road roundabout.
Parents doing the morning school run and workers returning home may notice some disruption at the intersection with work taking up to six months to complete.
Roading mayhem at the Raumati Road roundabout and the Mazengarb Road sealing fiasco is still fresh in people’s minds.
“Disruption must be kept to the absolute minimum. The public want better planned and organised roadworks.
“We strongly appeal to Mayor Gurunathan that there will be a smooth and efficient construction process, with minimal distribution to vehicles. We do not want to see a repeat of the public angst that previous Council roadworks have caused,” they say.
