We’re upgrading this rural road to suit an urban environment, making it more suitable for increased traffic, public transport, pedestrians, and cyclists.
We’re also setting up what’s needed for new housing in the area. This means creating systems for resident’s drinking water, stormwater and wastewater. We’ll be building new footpaths and kerbs as we go.
