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.
Due to growing traffic in the area, this intersection is experiencing delays for general traffic and buses for turning movements in and out of Aspiring Avenue. The intersection also lacks pedestrian crossing and cycling facilities.
Through the Network Optimisation Programme, these issues have been identified. The proposal aims to address these deficiencies, making the intersection safer and more efficient for all road users.
We are proposing to:
- add new traffic signals controls and light poles at the intersection of Hollyford Drive and Aspiring Avenue
- add new tactile pavers, which are yellow guidance paving markers to help visually impaired people to find their way to crossings and safely across roads
- add cycle tactile pavers at the intersection of Hollyford Drive and Aspiring Avenue
- construct a new footpath and cycle path along 36 to 52 Hollyford Drive and 29 Hollyford Drive to the driveway of 2B Aspiring Avenue
- construct a new footpath along 1 to 1A Aspiring Avenue and 2A to 6 Aspiring Avenue
- paint broken yellow lines along Hollyford Drive and Aspiring Avenue as per the attached drawing
- add new traffic islands and cycle separators at the intersection of Hollyford Drive.

This will benefit your neighbourhood by:
- enhancing pedestrian and cyclists’ safety and accessibility
- maintaining an efficient intersection operation for general vehicles and public transport
- improving visibility between motorists approaching the intersection.
These improvements would remove 23 kerb side parking spaces. We understand the removal of parking can be inconvenient, so we have minimised it as much as possible while still creating a safer road and crossing facilities for pedestrians.

Clover Park: Safe with us
This proposal supports Tāmaki Makaurau’s commitment to Vision Zero. Vision Zero is 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. It is about caring for more vulnerable road users like people walking or cycling, children and the elderly. Vision Zero is the international benchmark for transport safety.
