We Say/You Say: Safer Streets?

Thomas Campbell Reporter from Hamilton Press

Kia ora Hamilton,

Do you want to see the Innovating Streets initiative rolled out around your neighbourhood?

A trial by the Hamilton City Council to close off two streets to vehicles will soon be over.

The $902,000 trial ends on July 3. It currently sees the closure of a portion of Ward St and completely closes Rostrevor St to traffic.

Some business owners and staff made their dissatisfaction known at a meeting with council staff after experiencing a loss of custom.

Advocates for the trial included Bike Waikato chairman Richard Porter, who said that cyclists were making the most of no traffic.

After years of searching for a new recruit for their business, Auckland engineering firm Stainless Machinings turned to Competenz’s free job matching service to find them an ideal candidate.
In the space of a few short months, school leaver Stuart Martin joined the company.
