Car sales on Salisbury Rd could be a thing of the past after the Tasman District Council agreed at a meeting in Richmond on Thursday to start public consultation on a proposed traffic by-law to implement the ban on Richmond’s busiest road.
Council voted to approve a “consultation a proposal to ban vehicles for sale for the full length of Salisbury Road”. It also agreed to approve consultation on “a proposal to extend the no stopping lines on Salisbury Road on the north eastern side of the Waimea College staff carpark”.
The proposals followed consultation with Waimea College principal Scott Haines who approached council with concerns about traffic safety on Salisbury Rd. Two P2 drop off-pick up spaces on Salisbury Rd outside Waimea College and three P2 drop off-pick up spaces on Salisbury Rd outside Waimea Intermediate will also be included in the public consultation which will be notified next week.
