A public meeting is being held to discuss the proposed construction of a controversial $450,000 pedestrian crossing on east Auckland’s busiest road, Times reports. Auckland Transport (AT) is considering installing a raised crossing with traffic lights on Pakuranga Road, but Pakuranga MP Simeon Brown has labelled the plan “crazy” and says the raised crossing will cause significant disruption to traffic flows and frustrate motorists. The public meeting is at 7pm on Monday, August 29, at Farm Cove Intermediate School hall, 16 Butley Drive.
