We're proposing improvements in your area

As part of Auckland Transport’s Safe Speeds programme to improve pedestrian safety and promote safer speeds, we are proposing to install a raised zebra crossing outside of Stanley Bay School. This proposed change is part of our plan to support safe speeds near schools.

We are proposing to: 

  • Install a new raised zebra crossing outside 15 Russell Street to slow motorists to a safe speed at the crossing point and increase pedestrian visibility.
  • Install tactile pavers at the crossing point. These are yellow guidance paving markers to help visually impaired people to find their way to crossings and safely across roads.
  • Remove existing kerb build outs at this location to improve cyclist safety and accessibility.
  • Paint new road markings and install new signage to support the changes.

With support from Stanley Bay School, we are proposing to install a raised zebra crossing outside the school at 15 Russell Street. We believe this is the most suitable location as there is an existing Kea Crossing (school patrolled crossing) there and it is used frequently by school children.

The raised zebra crossing will elevate pedestrians, especially children, to be at eye-level of approaching drivers. This will help make pedestrians crossing the road or are waiting to cross more visible to drivers from a distance. The raised crossing will be level with the footpath which makes crossing at this location more comfortable for everyone, especially people with prams and wheelchairs.
