Proposal status: closed 5 December 2018, last updated 3 July 2019

Reference number: FP1819-019 

Proposal update

In November 2018 we asked for community feedback on our proposal for a new footpath and zebra crossing on Airfield Road in Takanini. While these works were scheduled for June 2019, the detailed design process has taken longer than anticipated.

Construction will now start in October, but we will let you know if there are any further delays to our plans. 

More details about the original consultation can be found below.

We've proposed changes in your area

We proposed a new footpath on Airfield Road in Takanini. The proposed change also included a priority crossing near the Porchester Road/Airfield Road roundabout.

This proposal is part of our footpath programme, which aims to improve pedestrian accessibility all over Auckland.

Why the changes are needed

These changes are needed to complete a gap in the current footpath network. The proposed changes will enable safer and more convenient walking journeys between Porchester Road and the new developments at Airfield Road.

Proposal outcome

This project will proceed without changes to the next stage of detailed planning. Thank you to everyone who submitted feedback. A summary of this feedback and answers to community questions and concerns is below.

Feedback received

  • This proposal received positive responses from community members and stakeholders who supported these improved walking facilities in the area.
  • Please undertake this proposal, and then gradually extend safe off-road paths towards Mill Road. This is a flat area very suitable for walking and prams and scooters etc.
    This suggestion to extend the footpath to Mill Road will be added to the new footpath candidate list for future consideration.
  • This footpath is great. Please also improve the crossing towards Porchester Rd by making it raised as nobody gives way to pedestrians, and there are many kids walking at this location.
    This suggestion to raise the existing crossing will be passed to the appropriate team within Auckland Transport for consideration.

Next steps

Construction will start in October 2019, but we will let you know if there are any further delays to our plans. Our contractors will send notices to affected residents 48-hours prior to construction starting.
