St Lukes Road and Kingsway Avenue, Sandringham – Intersection Improvements St Lukes Road and Kingsway Avenue, Sandringham – Intersection Improvements

Proposal status: Feedback open until 1 August 2022

Reference number: 20100505

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.

We are proposing some improvements at the intersection of St Lukes Road, Kingsway Avenue and Cornwallis Street.

We are proposing to:

  • Install 2 speed bumps on St Lukes Road to slow drivers down as they approach the intersection. These speed bumps will have long off-ramps for a smoother journey.
  • Remove the slip lane from St Lukes Road to Cornwallis Street
  • Install dual pedestrian and cyclist crossings on all legs of the intersection. These are traffic light-controlled crossings with separate painted lanes for cyclists and pedestrians to cross the road safely.
  • Widen the footpath and install cycle ramps from the road to the path on all legs at the intersection to ensure cyclists and pedestrians can use the new dual crossing safely.
  • Paint green boxes on the road. Cyclists travelling through the intersection will be able to wait on these boxes when the lights are red. 
  • Install tactile pavers at all road crossing points. Tactile Pavers are yellow guidance paving markers that help visually impaired people find their way to crossings and safely across roads.
  • Paint new road markings and install signage to support the changes.

The proposed pedestrian crossing on the eastern leg of St Lukes Road will make this intersection safer and more accessible for people walking around near St Lukes shopping centre. The dual crossings and painted green boxes will also make the intersection safer for cyclists.

The proposed speed bumps will slow drivers down as they approach the intersection, creating a safer road for all road users. The speed bumps' long off-ramps will minimise their effects on vehicles and discomfort for passengers.
