Proposal status: Closed
Reference number: BYL-536
In November 2021, we proposed to improve access on Squadron Drive, Hobsonville. After reviewing all the feedback, we have decided not to proceed with the proposed works due to proposed works in the area by Summerset Holdings Limited. AT will not be proceeding with the project while Summerset Holdings Limited progress with their proposal to provide additional parking and a turning circle on Squadron Drive. If for any reason Summerset do not progress with this, then AT will re-open this proposal. These works will help support our Vision Zero goal.
We're proposing improvements in your area
In response to community requests to address the issue of parking in the area, we are proposing to paint broken yellow lines along one side of Squadron Drive.
Listening to what you have to say is important to us. Your local knowledge can help us make better decisions, so together we can achieve the best outcomes for your neighbourhood.
We are proposing to:
- Paint a total of 182 metres of broken yellow lines split into 4 sections along one side of Squadron Drive. No legal parking spaces will be removed by these changes.
- Install No Stopping off Roadway signs (no parking on the grass berm) on one side of Squadron Drive.
Auckland Transport would like to work with you to deliver safer roads in your neighbourhood. Squadron Drive is a narrow road with a width of 5.3 metres and cars parked on both sides make driving down the street difficult, especially for emergency services and rubbish collection vehicles. We have received complaints from members of the community to address this issue. The changes will create a wider and safer road space, improving traffic flow and accessibility. Vehicles have also been parking on the grass berms along Squadron Drive and the installation of no stopping off roadway signs will prevent this from happening.
If you would like to post in your feedback, download and print our feedback form template, fill in your details and send it freepost using the address details on the form.
What happens next
- We’ll consider all the feedback we receive, and then decide the best way to move forward.

- We can email you the proposal outcome as soon as it’s ready – just select that option when you fill in the survey.

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.
