Name blades and signs for Cameron Road

As part of the finishing touches along Cameron Road, the construction team is currently installing name blades and signs along the corridor, during both days and nights.

Work paused over the Easter Weekend as the team observed the public holidays of Good Friday on March 29 and Easter Monday on April 1 and no one was on site during these times.

Tauranga City Council say there are also some remedial stormwater works underway on Cameron Road.

These works are largely underground and involve entering several manholes at the roadside, which will be fenced off while this work is underway.

There will be a lane closure in place on the eastern side of Cameron Road this week between 518 Cameron Road (ASB) and 528 Cameron Road (Fujifilm) while contractors expose the existing stormwater pipes using saw cutting.

A hydrovac truck will then flush the inside of the pipes and reinstate concrete in this section.

This work is expected to take four days and is weather dependent.

"Noise is associated with these works however contractors will endeavour to keep this to a minimum," says a council spokesperson.

"Access to businesses will be maintained."

There is also work underway on the streetlights, with some of the older lights being removed as new ones are turned on. The area directly around the lights will be closed as this work proceeds.

Work to install permanent fences and timber posts at some of the mid-block pedestrian crossings is nearing completion.

The team is also completing the remaining paint work on the shared footpath and cycleway, at nights (6pm to 6am) as weather allows.

"We thank you for your patience and understanding while these essential works are underway," says a council spokesperson.

I took a fairly long walk along the early avenues part of Cameron Road to Pack 'n' Save. I used the crossings with the cycle indicators and watched a lone cyclist who was crossing when I was. We both got the same time period to cross in, but he was across on his bike while I was still mid-way. What's the point? The cycle crossing adds nothing except another button. I took a closer look at the cycle lanes and the shared pedestrian/cycle lane. I believe we NEED 3 traffic lanes in both directions, and we have them, and the cycle lanes, but one of the traffic lanes is designated for Bus usage. If we had smaller buses, they could share this lane with cars and everybody would probably move better. Aesthetically, it all looks good, but it is new and clean, so it should. On balance: "Not bad".


TCC mantra?

Don't they realise we have no patience left? Fences should have been installed as part of the 'project'. Pretty paintwork on pathways, really? More wasted dollars.
