The double roundabout extravaganza at Gibbons and Main would clog up at some stage, he said. [This] is a serious issue that is going to come up whether you like it or not. The plan details a simple traffic light intersection and a realigning of the road where drivers would see H2O and Expressions clearly. This would open up an opportunity for a three-storey development on the corner to give a very strong signal . Discussion hasn t started in earnest but we probably need to have buildings on it [vacant green space] and deliver the dollars to do other things, Mr Mentz said. The consultant detailed Upper Hutt s shocking retailing leakage, running at an accepted $275 million a year. There are not a lot of high-end retailers bursting to get in and fashion chains are a long way away. They ll be the last. On employment, study had shown growth and employment opportunities could exist in professional scientific technical services, sport and recreation and with internet and data services. The city already has advantages in areas including defence, pharmaceuticals, security and hospitality, the audience was told.

But there would very likely be much risk adverse reaction from a number of other organis- ations which would need to be involved in any go- ahead, town planning consultant Kobus Mentz says. Subways do not work and will always be viewed as inhospitable and dangerous places, Mr Mentz said, while acknowledging the improvements made and the reduced length of the existing subway. A level pedestrian crossing would bring a com- pletely different world , he said. The response of the other authorities is some- thing that needs to be canvassed. I believe the council is already testing the idea privately with the authorities but it is an issue for you, he told last week s public meeting. Chance to unlock secret to teens Best-selling author and family coach Eva-Maria will be the keynote speaker at the Upper Hutt Parenting Expo on Thursday, June 16. Eva-Maria, from Wellington, is the author of the book You Shut Up! which became a national best-selling success. She now has a regular feature on The Breeze radio station and is involved in family and teen coaching internationally, helping to improve relationships between adults and teenagers. Upper Hutt City Council is hosting the expo which, this year, is focusing on information and sup- port to parents of teens. Eva-Maria will be keynote speaker at two sessions. She will also launch her second book Shush, You! at the event which will include a giveaway of 200 books. This is an amazing opportunity for Upper Hutt, says Andrea Curtis, the council s community services director. We encourage parents of teens to come along to the expo and book their seats to hear about the Three biggest teenage secrets . The expo is free. Seats are limited and must be booked for the keynote sessions. For more information on the expo, contact Jessica Setu 527 2794. More details about Eva-Maria are at eva- maria.co.nz New ground: On Friday vehicles started using the widened section of River Rd so the old lanes could be resealed.
