Mays Road and Grey Street, Onehunga – Intersection Safety Improvements Mays Road and Grey Street, Onehunga – Intersection Safety Improvements

Proposal status: Feedback open until 29 September 2022

Reference number: 12571094

We're proposing improvements in your area

As part of our work to improve road safety, we are proposing changes at the Mays Road and Grey Street intersection. We ask for just a few minutes of your time to give us your feedback.

We are proposing to:

  • Upgrade the existing stop-controlled intersection to a roundabout with raised pedestrian crossings on all approaches to the intersection. The roundabout would have low edges that can be driven over by larger vehicles like trucks and buses.
  • Relocate the existing parking bay outside 33 Mays Road to 35 Mays Road. This would prevent drivers from entering or exiting the parking bay directly from the intersection, making it safer. Relocating the parking bay also means people can cross the road closer to the shop.
  • Install traffic islands, to separate the lanes of traffic, as drivers enter and exit the roundabout.
  • Paint broken yellow lines to improve visibility at the intersection. This will remove 23 on-street parking spaces.
  • Install tactile pavers, which are yellow guidance paving markers to help visually impaired people find their way to crossings and safely across the road.
  • Install new signage and paint new road markings to support the changes.

How this will benefit your neighbourhood

The proposed changes would create a safer intersection for everyone as they would:

  • Slow motorists to a safer speed.
  • Improve visibility between motorists approaching the intersection.
  • Raise pedestrians crossing the road to be at eye-level of approaching motorists, making them easier to see.

These improvements would remove 23 on-street parking spaces near the intersection to improve visibility.

We acknowledge that this can be inconvenient, so we have minimised the removal of parking as much as possible.
