Upper Queen St and Canada St - pedestrian and cycling improvements

Consultation status: closed 8 February

We are seeking feedback on a proposal to improve pedestrian and cycling access around Upper Queen Street and Canada Street in Central Auckland.

We propose to:

  • Install a new signalised pedestrian any cyclist crossing across Upper Queen Street.
  • Install new pram crossings (with directional pavers).
  • Treat the surface of the footpath for safer walking and cycling.
  • Relocate the existing 'Shared Path' signage.
  • Change the road markings to reflect the improved layout.

This proposal will improve pedestrian and cyclist access to the off-road cycleways in Central Auckland. 

Grafton Gully cycleway, the Pink Cycle Path and Ian McKinnon cycleway all connect with Upper Queen Street. Cyclists and pedestrians travelling between Grafton Gully and the Pink Cycle Path currently have to cross the road twice to reach the other side of this intersection. 

The proposed changes will make the journey safer, easier and more direct.
