MOVED by Chairperson BK Neeson, seconded by Member MA Miles:  

That the Upper Harbour Local Board:

a)      receive the Auckland Transport Report – April 2015.

b)      note Auckland Transports reasoning for the decline of the request for a metal footpath on Kyle Road, Schnapper Rock for the following reasons:

i         Metal paths have a higher maintenance cost, with on-going need to

re-metal and regular weed spraying.

ii        The terrain in parts of this proposed footpath is steep, and it is likely to be a safety/liability issues with slips and falls due to loose metal under foot.

iii       Steeper metal paths are not suitable for prams, mobility scooters and frail or elderly member of the community.

iv       Loose metal in the top end of the road (northern) would need to be across residents frontages and this can be dangerous for lawn mowing.

c)      decline the request for concrete footpath due to the prohibitive cost.

d)      request of Auckland Transport to consider the connection of footpaths as the area develops in future, with developers being requested to implement footpaths associated with their developments.
