Constellation Dr, Rosedale – Clearway and bus stop updates Constellation Dr, Rosedale – Clearway and bus stop updates

Consultation status: closed 17 April 2018

Proposal reference: RTV-136

We are proposing to make changes to Constellation Drive, including:

  • Implementation of a new weekday evening clearway along the south side of Constellation Drive that applies 4pm to 7pm, Monday to Friday. 
  • Installation of broken yellow lines around existing bus stops to allow sufficient space for buses to manoeuvre into and out of stops. This is part of our efforts to standardise bus stops across Auckland.

Why the changes are needed

Vehicles parked along the south side of Constellation Drive during peak PM hours effectively prevent westward-moving traffic from using the transit lane, forcing vehicles into traffic queues and causing delays. Constellation Drive is a major arterial road and an important link to the Northern Busway that will see an increase in bus movement when the new bus network is rolled out in late 2018. The proposal is expected to improve the flow of all vehicles at this location, including buses.
