Gore traffic bridge pedestrian / cyclist safety survey


2018 gore bridge


The Gore District Council has launched a survey to find out if pedestrians and cyclists feel safe using the Gore traffic bridge.

This survey is now closed.

The survey is part of an investigation into options to improve walking and cycling links between East Gore and the rest of the town, and provide better links between existing and proposed cycle trails.

Among the options is a proposal for a bridge only for cyclists and pedestrians upstream of the existing traffic bridge. A new structure across the Mataura River could also potentially accommodated a new pipeline should the Council go ahead with plans to rationalise the Hilbre Avenue water treatment plant, in North Gore, and the East Gore water treatment plant into one, as flagged in its 10-Year-Plan.
