HONOLULU — A Honolulu City Council member says she plans to revive a proposal to limit commercial tour activity following complaints about traffic congestion on Oahu’s North Shore.
Hawaii Public Radio reported Wednesday that Heidi Tsuneyoshi addressed the area’s traffic problems at a public hearing Tuesday.
North Shore residents at the meeting expressed frustration over traffic congestion.
Tsuneyoshi says she will bring back a bill proposed last year to limit or outlaw commercial tour companies from stopping at specific city parks and beach access rights-of-way.
The city council deferred action on the bill in October.
Councilors at Tuesday’s hearing also advanced a resolution urging the state transportation department to reinstall concrete traffic barriers at Laniakea Beach.
A 10-year-old was struck by a car in August while crossing the highway along the beach.
