Awapuni Rd needs work

LETTER

I recently had to go down Awapuni Road and whilst sitting in my car with many logging trucks passing me by, I could not help noticing the dust and the road noise from these heavy vehicles. I feel so sorry for the people who live in this area.

My suggestion is that Gisborne District Council gets this sorted out — rip up the road, get rid of the rough surface and hot-mix the lot. This will give a very smooth surface, reducing road noise. And every so often send the wash truck down it to eliminate the dust.
