Bus say: last day

Today is the last day for submissions on the proposed central Palmerston North bus terminal.

Infrastructure and projects engineer Robin Malley said yesterday 25 submissions had been received by the city council, ahead of the traditional last-minute rush.

Manawatu Chamber of Commerce chairman Andrew McLean is urging business people to have their say and contribute to making the best possible decision.

The city council delayed affirming its preferred option at Main St East, with regional buses parking along the east side of The Square, to allow time for consultation. But since a public meeting late last month, where Mayor Jono Naylor said the council was prepared to reconsider alternatives, the council has decided not to proceed with the project until at least 2014-15.

The $8.8 million included in its draft annual plan has been shifted back two years until Horizons Regional Council has reviewed urban bus services, timetables and routes.

Submissions will be heard at the end of July, but Mr Malley said staff still had to work out what would happen next because of the council's decision to delay the project.
