This Executive Summary uses a table to present the 50+ things that residents want and the streets in which they are needed. On the table are the page numbers in the plan where these are discussed.
Our next steps are to negotiate with funding and prospective partners to achieve these wants.
The information comes from various consultations and activities carried out involving residents in the past year since the KTRA was constituted.
The progress will be reported quarterly, and achievements in-between time will be communicated promptly.
The Plan will be reviewed and updated in 2021.
We welcome your comments and suggestions.
