In the presentation were the following four suggestions:
To ensure that, once the design for the major upgrade of the Hill Street intersection was completed, that construction commence without delay (currently construction is delayed until the end of 2021);
That minor works improvements to Sandspit Road commence to improve traffic flow and safety, including –
Moving the Sandspit Road pedestrian crossing to the traffic lights,
A sliplane between Sandspit Road and Elizabeth Street,
An extra lane at the Sandspit Road/ Elizabeth Street give way towards the traffic lights, and
Traffic signalling for the Elizabeth Street/Sandspit Road intersection.
Completion of the Sandspit Link (between Matakana Link and Sandspit Road) at the same time as the Matakana Link; and
Extending/realigning the motorway so that the 100km/h zone extend uninterrupted to the Matakana and Sandspit Links.
