Northcross Safer Communities programme

Consultation status: open until 16 March 2017

We are seeking feedback from the Northcross community on multiple projects as part of our Safer Communities programme.

In Northcross, we are seeking feedback on potential improvements across nine locations:

Northcross Safer Communities Programme Map

Site 1 - Inverness Road and Beach Road - Crossing Improvements


This is a wide intersection with no pedestrian facilities. The proposed changes will improve pedestrian safety at this location.

The proposed changes include:

  • A new kerb buildout on the northern corner of the intersection.
  • New pram ramps and associated tactile pavers.
  • New pavement markings, including 'No stopping at all times' to improve visibility.

Site 2 - Argyle Road and Beach Road - Crossing Improvements


There are limited pedestrian crossing facilities on Beach Road and wide crossing distances on Argyle Road. The proposed crossing facilities will connect people walking from Beach Road to Argyle Road and ultimately to the town centre and the beach access. The extension of the ‘No stopping at all times’ restrictions are needed to provide enough visibility between crossing pedestrians and approaching drivers.

The proposed changes include:

  • A new pedestrian refuge island on Beach Road with associated pram ramps and tactile pavers.
  • New pram ramps at Argyle Road with tactile pavers.
  • Footpath reconstruction.
  • New 'No stopping at all times' restrictions for visibility.

Site 3 - Carlisle Road and Beach Road - Signalised pedestrian crossing


This is a partially signalised intersection with incomplete pedestrian facilities which present a challenge for pedestrians. The non-signalised left-turn slip lane is hazard for pedestrians who have to wait in the middle of the road to find a gap in the traffic to cross the road. The proposed changes will improve pedestrian safety at this location.

The proposed changes include:

  • A new pedestrian signalised crosswalk on Carlisle Road.
  • A new splitter island on Carlisle Road.
  • Removing the left-turn slip lane by extending the kerb.
  • New road markings including advance boxes for cyclists.

Site 4 - Firth Road and Carlisle Road - Crossing improvements


This intersection is wide and presents a challenge for pedestrians, especially the most vulnerable road users like young children from the nearby Torbay Primary School. The proposed changes will improve pedestrian safety at this location.

The proposed changes include:

  • A new pedestrian refuge island on Firth Road with associated pram ramps, tactile pavers, signage and 'No stopping at all times' restrictions for improved visibility.
  • A new splitter refuge island on Carlisle Road.
  • New footpath and kerb build-outs.
  • Shifting the existing Right Turn Bay further east.
  • Realigning and remarking the bus stop outside 56 Carlisle Road as per current standards.
  • Restructuring the three driveways on Carlisle Road to combine them into one property access.

Site 5 - Carlisle Road - Mid-block pedestrian crossing


There are no crossing points on Carlisle Road, from Deverell Place to Flinchley Road. The proposed changes will provide a safer crossing facility for pedestrians at this location.

The proposed changes include:

  • A new mid-block splitter island outside 86 Carlisle Road with associated pram ramps, tactile pavers and signage.
  • New 'No stopping at all times' restrictions for visibility.

Site 6 - East Coast Road and Glamorgan Drive - Crossing improvements


This is a wide intersection with no pedestrian facilities. There is also a left-turn slip lane from East Coast Road into Glamorgan Drive which encourages high speeds of left-turning vehicles. The proposed changes will improve safety at this location and provide better pedestrian connectivity to Kate Sheppard Avenue.

The proposed changes include:

  • Removing of the left-turn slip lane by extending the kerb.
  • Shifting the existing right-turn bay further north.
  • New splitter traffic island.
  • New footpath to connect to the splitter island.
  • New pram crossings with tactile pavers.

Site 7 - Oteha Valley Road and Rising Parade - Signalised pedestrian crossing


The proposed changes will provide better pedestrian connectivity to the bus stop west of the roundabout, which in turn will encourage more locals to take the bus as an alternative transport.

The proposed changes include:

  • A new mid-block signalised pedestrian facility west of the roundabout.
  • New road markings and signs matching the new crossing.

Site 8 - Greville Road and East Coast Road - Intersection improvements


There is a high number of pedestrians crossing at this intersection. At present, people crossing Greville Road need to negotiate over two left-turn slip lanes where there are no crossing facilities. It is also difficult for them to cross East Coast Road due to incomplete crosswalks and wide crossing distances. The proposed changes will increase pedestrian safety and connectivity across the intersection. The 'No stopping at all times' restrictions are required for inter-visibility between crossing pedestrians and approaching drivers.

The proposed changes include:

  • A fully signalised intersection inclusive of all turning and through traffic movements.
  • Removing the left-turn slip lanes by extending the kerbs.
  • New pedestrian facilities to cross both Greville Road and East Coast Road.
  • New advance boxes for cyclists.
  • New 'No stopping at all times' restrictions.
  • Footpath reconstruction and new speed humps outside 589-585 East Coast Road.

Site 9 - Weetman Road and East Coast Road - Intersection improvements


The wide corners entering Weetman Drive coupled with a wide pedestrian crossing distance present a challenge for people crossing at this intersection. There are bus stops opposite side of the road, however, there is no connection between them which limits connectivity for people using the bus stops. The proposed changes will increase pedestrian safety and connectivity across the intersection and at the bus stops.

The 'No stopping at all times' restrictions either side of the bus stops are to provide enough tracking space and visibility for bus drivers. This will allow buses to reach their destinations on time and improve efficiency of the overall bus route.

The 'No stopping at all times' restrictions at the corners of Weetman Drive and East Coast Road, as well as either side of the crossing facility on East Coast Road, are required for better visibility between crossing pedestrians and approaching drivers.

The proposed changes include:

  • A new mid-block refuge island outside 575 East Coast Road.
  • A new splitter refuge island on Weetman Drive, at the intersection with East Coast Road.
  • Footpath reconstruction and pram crossings with tactile pavers.
  • New 'No stopping at all times' restrictions.
