We're proposing changes in your area
We are proposing to upgrade two left turn slip lanes of Great South Road into Alfriston Road and Weymouth Road in Manurewa. The proposal includes two new raised zebra crossings, changes to the associated traffic-islands, as well as updates to signage, lighting and road markings.
Why the changes are needed
These changes are needed to improve pedestrian safety by slowing traffic. Currently the relatively large radius of these bends allows for cars to speed through this pedestrian crossing.
This proposal is part of our Road Safety programme that aims to improve safety in all of Auckland.
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 upgrades to pedestrian safety.
- Please confirm this will not affect the access to the front door of the church.
The proposed improvements are only for the adjacent slip lane at the intersection. We can confirm that this will not affect the front access to the church.
- Request to put traffic lights here as well, it will be even safer.
The option of providing traffic signal has been considered. We ended up with speed table as our considerations were given to improve pedestrian safety by the speed table can slow down the speed of traffic at the left turn slip lane in the meanwhile maintaining the traffic operational performance.
This work will happen before July 2020, 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.
