Proposal status: closed 25 July 2019

Reference number: FP1819-037

We've proposed changes in your area

We proposed to improve safety for people walking on Ararimu Road in Ramarama. The proposed safety improvements included:

  • a pedestrian crossing with traffic signals outside Ramarama Primary School;
  • new footpath and associated facilities on both sides of Ararimu Road;
  • safer designated parking on Ararimu Road, including redesigning the school car park;
  • red 'School' road markings to raise driver awareness and a flashing warning sign indicating the nearby signalised pedestrian crossing;
  • raised speed tables on McEldownie and Hillview Roads.

This will involve the creation of 8 additional car parks.

Why the changes are needed

These changes are needed to improve safety for people walking and other vulnerable road users around the Ramarama Primary School given the increased pedestrian traffic that’s expected with the nearby Drury south development.
