Have your say Oropi

Leave your feedback or comments on any Oropi topic or
project here. We'd also love to hear about what's important for you, and your
community, in the coming years.
Here’s what some Oropi
residents have commented to date:
- Sealing of the road Upper Ohauiti
Road to McPhail Road past Quarry. This used to be on the seal extension list
but no longer appears. This road is used frequently by families driving
children to Oropi School and isn't well maintained. Is there a plan to seal
this part of the road?
- Agree this piece of road (Upper
Ohauiti Road to McPhail Road past Quarry) not being sealed seems out of place
with the rest of the Tauranga region. It is frequently used piece of road by
upper Oropi and Ohauiti residents and all upper Ohauiti residents are zoned for
Oropi school. It seems ridiculous that to get to this school there is still a
section of metal.
- Reduce speed in the Oropi Village
area to 40km, especially during School start and end times. Consider re-design
of the road by the staff parking area opposite Gamman Mill Road. This is really
dangerous for staff and visitors coming in and out of the car park, especially
when traffic is coming around the corner as visibility is poor. Improve street
parking in the School zone to reduce chaos especially at the end of the school
day. Install crossing for families to cross the road outside the bus turning
bay opposite School.
- I saw a comment about removing the
yellow 'no passing' line from outside Wood Road. I have seen many people
passing along that straight before the yellow line was put there. Cars turning
out of Wood Road to go down the hill were potentially at risk. If you haven't
seen this happen, the yellow line may seem unnecessary.
- Can't see what reducing speed limit
to 80kmh would achieve. The road is not the issue, the users are. Reducing the
speed to 80 will absolutely not make the road safer when you have school buses
parking across intersections, people wandering down the road and cyclists
riding 3 and 4 wide. Idiots parked in the middle of the road apparently lost or
looking for a driveway is another classic... Most of the time you are
travelling at 60 or less and it's still a lethal stretch of road.
