Riverside Roundabout - work undertaken

The removal of the greatly overgrown foiliage at the Riverside Avenue/Riverside Drive roundabout to improve safety for pedestrians crossing has now been carried out.  

Although the roundabout looks very bare at the moment, I am assured by the City Engineer that replacement greenery will be provided as follows :

“It has been agreed that low level shrubs should be used and not trees as previously considered. As such a work order is to be issued to replace the existing shrubs with low level varieties, eg Euonymus and Hebe which will reduce future maintenance costs but retain a 'green' element to the roundabout.”
