The current style of planting on the length of TONGARIRO STREET obscures any pedestrians crossing the traffic lanes, particularly near the information centre. Cars are directed very close to this island(by way of the right turning lane into Story Place) so have little chance of avoiding someone who may suddenly step out. I feel that this whole centre island would be safer for all parties if it was completely cleared and would greatly improve visibility. Please view this current situation at 'child level' to guage the risk to our smaller residents/visitors. Note that not all vehicles have elevated drivers seating. ie SUVs etc. ps the street corner reconstruction is a great improvement. Thank you .
