Roads and Streets
The city's roading system provides accessibility to Napier citizens and visitors within a safe, clean and aesthetic environment.
The services cover the provision and maintenance of the physical components; roads, footpaths, bridges and other structures (e.g. street furniture), lighting, drainage, traffic services and safety (e.g. traffic lights, signage) and street gardens, as well as the planning and management to ensure the system is clean, safe and able to cope with future needs.
