Communities (residents, schools, police etc) can work together and the council does listen!
After a few letters of concern from schools and LoveOpua to Clarks Coachline, the FNDC and our Mayor John Carter, work has (out of the blue) started… Hans Garton and his team from Earthworx, have begun to widen the road verge just south of Oromahoe Road. Hans thinks the project should be finished within the next two weeks. Big boulders and plenty of wood piles will make this dangerous corner much safer for our school kids to wait for the Kerikeri Bus and for passengers to disembark from the public busses. There will even be room for a bus shelter.
Thank you FNDC for listening to us!! Now the ball is in our corner to erect a bus shelter. Please contact Manuela 021 44 55 29 if you can help.
