Latest Project updates
Nelson City Council submitted the Beach Road raised table project for the Provincial Growth Fund (PGF), designed to generate new jobs post COVID-19.
This project involves traffic calming measures on Beach Road to make it safer for all users. This includes narrowing the road width, raising the height of the pavement and introducing more vegetation to the intersection. This will slow traffic down along a section of Beach Road that approaches a crossing for the shared pathway.
Council received feedback during our consultation period on the adjacent shared path that vehicles sometimes travel through this intersection at high speeds, so this work will ensure that vulnerable users of the new shared path are kept as safe as possible.
