We're proposing improvements in your area

We are proposing to improve pedestrian safety in Kumeu by installing a raised zebra crossing outside 194 Matua Road.

We are proposing to:

  • Install a new raised zebra crossing that meets the current safety standards in front of 194 Matua Road. The crossing will be raised on a speed bump with a flat section in the middle where people can walk across the road.
  • Install tactile pavers at the approach of the crossing. Tactile pavers are yellow guidance paving markers that help the visually impaired find their way to the crossings.
  • Install belisha beacons, or orange-coloured discs, to provide additional visibility especially at night
  • Paint broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) approaching and at the corner of Matua Road and Gilbransen Road, which will remove 15 parking spaces. This is to improve visibility between drivers and pedestrians waiting to cross the road.
  • Install signage to inform drivers of the raised crossing.

Customers have asked us to make it safer for pedestrians to cross this road. The proposal will also improve driver visibility when approaching the joint and guide them to slow down and give way to pedestrians crossing.
