We're proposing improvements in your area

Aucklanders have told us that moving around our city safely and easily is important to them. We are proposing some improvements to your area.

In response to requests received by the community regarding speed and sideswiping of vehicles we are proposing to do some minor improvements on Aranui Road, Mt Wellington.

We are proposing to build two raised safety platforms to slow down vehicles around the bend:

We are proposing to: 

  • Installing two safety platforms which are flat and wide speed bumps raised to the height of the footpath, outside 61 and 71 Aranui Road. The speed bump is flat and wide with a long off ramp. This makes it more comfortable for larger vehicles and their passengers.
  • Paint broken yellow lines (NSAAT) on the bend of Aranui Road to improve visibility. This will remove 9 parking spaces.

This project aims to improve safety in Aranui Road, Mt Wellington

We want to work with you to deliver safer roads in your neighbourhood. These changes would:

  • Slow motorists to a safer speed.

This project supports Tāmaki Makaurau’s commitment to Vision Zero, an ambitious transport safety vision, with the goal of no deaths or serious injuries on our transport system by 2050. This approach acknowledges that as people we all make mistakes, however a mistake should not mean someone dies or is seriously injured on our roads. It’s also an approach that values everyone using the road, not just those in vehicles.
