It’s a case of 10 steps forward and one step sideways for Tauranga City Council’s new footpath design.

The crooked pathway features in The Lakes development in Pyes Pa.

People have labelled the kinky footpath on Te Ranga Memorial Drive as ridiculous, but council defended the design, calling it flexible.

Tauranga asset delivery manager Howard Severinsen defended the design.
“This is an example of subdivisional developers using flexibility to place the necessary underground services into the road corridor while still achieving some greenery.
“A straight footpath would have posed more problems accessing the underground infrastructure – fibre, water, gas, power and streetlight cabling – as house building proceeded.”

Council was unable to provide details on how much the footpath cost.

  1. this is a very sensible idea. if they had made a normal path they would have to redo the wires. for those of you who cant understand news talk.
