Ti Rakau Drive, East Tamaki – Traffic lights installation Ti Rakau Drive, East Tamaki – Traffic lights installation

Proposal status: updated 20 December 2018

Due to the holiday period, the outcome for this proposal will be slightly delayed. We expect that a final decision will be made available in January, which we will then provide updates in addition to responses to individual concerns and requests.

Reference number: RSU1819-071

We're proposing changes in your area

We are proposing to signalise a section of Ti Rakau Drive near the driveway of the bus depot, in Burswood. The new traffic lights would be coordinated with those at nearby intersections to ensure smooth operation of the roadway and would primarily impact eastbound traffic lanes at this location. This proposal would also involve: 

  • changes to traffic islands and kerb lines.
  • installation of a bus lane.
  • minor changes to road markings and signage.

Why the changes are needed

We have investigated safety concerns at this location after a recent fatal crash involving a motorcyclist. The proposed changes would effectively eliminate the risk of conflicts between oncoming traffic and vehicles entering and exiting the bus depot. We expect that this would make the road a safer environment for all road users.
