We're proposing changes in your area
We are proposing a new footpath on Airfield Road in Takanini. The proposed change also includes 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.
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.
- 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.
This work will happen before July 2019 , but we will let you know if there are further changes or delays. Our contractors will send notices to affected residents 48-hours prior to construction starting.
