Tauranga residents are being invited to have their say on a proposed cul-de-sac for 5th Ave.
In early 2021, a preliminary design was shared with the community which included the 5th Ave (west)/ Cameron Road intersection being made into a cul-de-sac.
“This was done to improve safety, create a more pedestrian-friendly area and to increase the clearings,” says a Tauranga City Council spokesperson.
Community feedback on this design both supported and opposed the cul-de-sac.
“Those in opposition raised concerns about access to businesses and the traffic flows on 6th Ave if both 5th and 7th Aves were changed to cul-de-sacs.
“As a result, the final design kept the left in, left out access at Fifth Avenue (west).”
The option is being looked at again following a site walk on March 16, 2022.
During the visit, Tauranga City Council Commissioners looked for opportunities to create a safer environment and more amenity through tree plantings along the route in areas where construction is yet to start.
“They requested the Cameron Road Project Team look at returning the 5th Ave cul-de-sac as one option to achieve this.”
