Region-wide pedestrian crossing improvements Region-wide pedestrian crossing improvements

Auckland’s population has grown significantly over the past years. This has affected our roads: in the years between 2012 and 2017, the number of pedestrians being seriously injured or killed on Auckland’s roads increased by 75%. Recent investigations show that 20% of pedestrian crashes occur at existing zebra crossings.

To curb this trend and meet the objectives of the Regional Land Transport Plan, we are planning to roll out a region-wide programme that targets existing crossings at high-risk locations. We have selected 49 sites that we're hoping to improve first.


Project overview 

How we selected these 49 sites

We want to maximise our impact on the community with these upgrades. For that reason, we have carefully assessed the many existing crossings all over Auckland, and prioritised these sites based on a combination of crash data, vicinity to schools and town-centres, road speed, the volume of cars, traffic conditions, and community requests.

Further safety upgrades to other crossings across Auckland are currently being investigated for the following years.

Benefits of raising these crossings

All locations will be transformed by raising the crossing onto a table. This is proven to be an effective means of slowing vehicles to 30 km/h or less. Slow speeds are essential to ensure pedestrian safety. Depending on the location of the crossing, changes may also include building out the kerb, and/or new refuge islands that will shorten crossing distances for people on the footpath.

Other new safety features include: improved signage, surface treatments, road markings and lighting. These will increase the visibility of pedestrians, and create a safe environment for all road users, at all times.

Timeline and construction

Community feedback closes on 14 December 2018.

We will respond to this feedback after the holiday period in late January. We are aiming to construct the projects between March to June 2019. Construction of a crossing takes about a week, and our contractors will do their best to minimise any inconvenience this may cause.

Contractors will notify affected residents if any changes in the delivery date occur.

Central proposals

Overview map of projects Central

At 273 Ponsonby Road, Ponsonby we propose to raise the zebra crossings and central refuge island. This project includes protective traffic islands, high friction road surfacing and flashing smart studs. Red Reflective Raised Pavement Markers highlight the crossing to approaching vehicles at night and during bad weather. This also involves a small amount of broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times parking restrictions) next to the crossing outside #302. This is to make sure that people using the crossing are visible to traffic.
