Arthur Roundabout Unpopular

The idea of constructing a roundabout in the village of Arthur appears dead.

A majority of Arthur residents at an open house opposed the idea of the roundabout for the intersection of Gordon, Eliza, Domville and Frederick streets.

The area has a lot of pedestrian traffic, with the community centre and pool nearby.

Instead Wellington North council will focus on reducing vehicle traffic in the area and moving a pedestrian crosswalk.
