Kitchener Road, Waiuku – Footpath Upgrade Kitchener Road, Waiuku – Footpath Upgrade

Proposal status: Feedback open until 15 December 2022

Reference number: 20100459

We're proposing improvements in your area

Aucklanders have told us that moving around our city safely and easily is important to them. We are proposing some improvements to your area.

We are addressing safety concerns raised by the community due to the lack of walking facilities along Kitchener Road in Waiuku. We ask for just a few minutes of your time to give us your feedback.

We are proposing to:

  • Construct a new footpath along Kitchener Road, from Brights Road to the section of existing footpath outside 89 Kitchener Road.
  • Install a give way sign at the intersection of Brights Road and Kitchener Road.
  • Slope the footpath and install tactile pavers on either side of Brights Road. Tactile pavers are yellow guidance paving markers to help visually impaired people find their way to crossing points.
  • Move the bus stop outside 82-84 Kitchener Road slightly further west and increase its length to 15m.

We have a vision for Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland where no one dies or is seriously injured on our transport network. We want everyone to be safe regardless of how they are travelling.

This project along Kitchener Road contributes to Tāmaki Makaurau’s Vision Zero goal by filling a gap in the footpath network. This upgrade would provide a safe and continuous footpath along this section of Kitchener Road which would improve pedestrian safety and accessibility.

We are also proposing to make Brights Road give way controlled to help improve safety of traffic turning out from Brights Road.

Waiuku: Safe with us

Auckland Transport cares for your safety. We want to make our roads safe for everyone, people walking and cycling, especially for our kids and senior citizens and people driving. Projects like this one around Kitchener Road are another step towards our goal of achieving no deaths or serious injuries on our roads. We are guided by the Vision Zero approach to transport safety, which prioritises human safety over other measures (like minor time saving).
