We're proposing changes 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.
The Hibiscus and Bays Local Board have asked us to improve safety at the intersection of Calypso Place and Knights Road. We are proposing to install a stop control sign and Broken Yellow Lines (no stopping at all times) and are asking your views.
The changes we are proposing:
- Install a stop control sign and new road markings on Calypso Place.
- Install broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) at the intersection of Calypso Place and Knights Road, removing a total of 2 parking spaces.
Auckland Transport would like to work with you to deliver safer roads in your neighbourhood. Installing a new Stop sign and painting white road markings will provide guidance for vehicles travelling along Knights Road. The road markings indicate the edge of the road at the intersection and the stop sign will encourage drivers to stop before exiting the intersection.
In addition, the broken yellow lines will improve driver visibility by stopping parked cars blocking the view of the road. We understand removing parking can be inconvenient and we try to minimise the number of parking spaces removed while also providing clear visibility and access.

Hibiscus and Bays: 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 Calypso Place 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).
