We're proposing improvements in your area
Listening to what you have to say is important to us. Your local knowledge can help us make better decisions, so together we can achieve the best outcomes for your neighbourhood.
We are proposing to:
- Paint additional broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) restrictions along the southern kerb, from property 2A to 24, on Albert Road.
- Slightly widen the centre line on Albert Road by painting a narrow median strip to provide greater separation between opposing traffic. These are white diagonal lines painted in the centre the road.
- This will result in the loss of approximately 11 parking spaces.
We received requests from the community and the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board to improve safety for cyclists travelling along Albert Road in the westbound direction, between the roundabout and the pedestrian crossing in front of St. Francis and All Soul’s Church.
In response, we are proposing to paint broken yellow lines along the stretch of Albert Road between the roundabout and the pedestrian crossing. This will remove the pinch points created by parked vehicles along Albert Road and provide a continuous section for cyclists to share the road with vehicles.
What happens next
- We’ll listen to all the feedback we receive, and then decide the best way to move forward.
- We’ll post the outcome of this proposal and a summary of community feedback on this webpage.
- We can email you the proposal outcome as soon as it’s ready – just select that option when you fill in the survey.
Devonport: Safe with us
Auckland Transport cares for your safety. We want to make our roads safe for everyone, people walking and cycling, especially for our kids and senior citizens and people driving. Projects like this one around Albert Road are another step towards our goal of achieving no deaths or serious injuries on our roads. We are guided by the Vision Zero approach to transport safety, which prioritises human safety over other measures (like minor time saving).
