Proposal status: Feedback closed 23 August 2021
Reference number: BYL-521
Our proposal received a range of feedback that highlighted how important accessibility and safety along Mapou Road and Squadron Drive are to the local community. The process of reviewing the feedback has taken longer than anticipated. We aim to publish an overview of it, and the outcome of the proposal, on this webpage within the next couple of months. We thank everyone for sending us feedback and apologise for this delay. We will be back in contact as soon as possible.
We're proposing improvements in your area
Aucklanders have told us that moving around our region safely and easily is important to them. We are proposing some improvements to your area. In response to a request from a resident, we are proposing to install broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) and ‘No Stopping off the Roadway’ signs on Mapou Road and Squadron Drive, Hobsonville.
We are proposing to:
- Paint broken yellow lines along:
- The approach to the raised platform at the junction of Mapou Road and Squadron Drive.
- Both sides of the Mapou Road entrance to Uku Lane.
- Both sides of the Mapou Road entrance to Contact Lane.
- The berm of 30 and 32 Mapou Road.
- The cycle lane on the west side of Squadron Drive between Mapou Road and Hobsonville Point Road.
- Install ‘No Stopping off the Roadway’ signs along the west side of Squadron Drive between Mapou Road and Hobsonville Point Road.
These changes will involve the removal of 5 parking spaces.
Please note that the aerial image used is the most up to date available, and it does not reflect recent property development in the area.
Auckland Transport would like to work with you to deliver safer roads in your neighbourhood. We are proposing to paint broken yellow lines on Mapou Road to improve access to Uku Lane and Contact Lane. We are also proposing changes on Squadron Drive in response to vehicles parking on the berm. This is because it causes heavy damage to the berm during the winter months and presents a risk to cyclists using the cycle lane as traffic crosses the cycle lane when accessing the berm. Therefore, we are proposing ‘No Stopping off the Roadway’ signs and broken yellow lines along this area of Squadron Drive to reduce this risk.

Hobsonville: 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 Mapou Road and Squadron Drive 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).
