Former President Peter Jackson, with support from current President Peter Hooper, presented to the Rodney local Board in March to push for the development of a footpath from the roundabout to the Community Centre. The footpath is a project that many members of the community have been asking for well over 10 years, and is a critical piece of infrastructure that will allow walkers and riders a safe route to the centre. The current roading option is particularly unsafe, and with no pedestrian access, the path is long overdue.
The concept was well received, and we will wait with anticipation for the scoping study to be completed by council in the coming months. The work from Peter Jackson in developing the video above deserves to be applauded.
