We're proposing changes in your area
We are proposing a new pedestrian crossing on Cascades Road in Pakuranga Heights.
The proposed crossing includes:
- A pedestrian refuge island, pram crossings and tactile pavers.
- New road markings along Cascades Road.
Why the changes are needed
These changes are needed to to improve safety for pedestrians, including children making use of the nearby sports facilities. Currently there is a lack of crossing facilities, which poses a risk to pedestrians due to the high traffic volumes on Cascades Road.
Proposal update, 19 October 2018
Our proposal received a large amount of feedback requesting for better placement of this pedestrian crossing. We are currently investigating alternative locations to provide safer pedestrian access to the Lloyd Elsmore Park and its facilities. We will consult with affected residents again once a new location has been determined.
Proposal outcome, 30 October 2018
After having received mixed feedback, we have reviewed the feasibility of the refuge on the southern section of Lady Marie Drive.
We are currently not proceeding with this project due to current site constraints, like the high number of turning traffic. In the future this corridor will be reviewed for additional pedestrian facilities where appropriate.
