We're proposing improvements in your area

Aucklanders have told us that moving around our city safely and easily is important to them. 

We’re proposing to improve pedestrian safety by installing a raised zebra crossing over Great South Road at its intersection with McAnnalley Street. 

We are proposing to:

  • Install a raised Swedish-style zebra crossing, which is a pedestrian crossing on top of a wide, flat speed bump which has a gently sloped exit ramp for a comfortable ride. 
  • Install tactile pavers at the new crossing. These are yellow guidance markers that help visually impaired people find their way.
  • Widen the footpath near the parking bays in front of 240 and 242 Great South Road and repaint the parking lines. This would mean removing one parking space. 
  • Move the existing bus stop and shelter from 235 Great South Road to 231 Great South Road. 
  • Paint broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times lines) at the former bus stop at 235 Great South Road. 
  • Paint new road markings and install signs to alert drivers to the crossing.

This proposal is part of a region-wide programme to upgrade pedestrian safety and aims to make crossing Great South Road safer and easier.

The proposed raised pedestrian crossing would slow drivers to a safer speed near the crossing and the McAnnalley Street shops. It would be raised from the street level so it is easy for everyone, including people with prams and wheelchairs, to cross. This type of crossing has a gentle down ramp so it is comfortable for all vehicles to drive over.

In order to install the improved crossing, we would need to move the existing bus stop at 235 Great South Road to 231 Great South Road and remove one carpark, which we understand can be inconvenient. The proposed crossing would provide residents and visitors a safe, highly visible option to cross Great South Road and improve access to the shops and bus stops.
