  • Pukerua Bay Bypass – Karen reported that a meeting to discuss the possibility of a bypass was attended by 22 people. Practical options for a bypass are being explored. It is believed that it would be possible to have a bypass that would avoid houses at the north end of Pukerua Bay. Also would need to identify an area to be designated for a bypass.
    The Residents’ Association Committee indicated that they do not have a position on a bypass at this time. The focus is on getting Transit to carry out the work required to improve safety along State Highway 1.
