NZTA please take note. Just how are emergency vehicles meant to get quickly through this traffic once your center barriers are installed? Oh, how local residents and road users are hoping for logic to prevail.

just for the barrier install....

So NZTA please explain how emergency services will get past when centre barriers are installed? There isn't any room to get past those big trucks on the corner..... Meanwhile kids are late to school, others are late to work, medical appointments, flights - this list goes on!

Once the barrier is installed there will be no way past accidents like this, you’ll be stuck between wire ropes waiting for it to be cleared.. let alone how emergency services get to the site. Absolute madness from NZTA…
It’s bad enough without barriers, barriers will just compound the problem making the road impassable
