Because we are committed to making quality safety improvements our detailed design process has taken longer than anticipated. Construction of this crossing is now scheduled to take place in November 2019. We will let you know if there are any further changes to our plans.
We’ve proposed changes in your area
In July 2018 we asked for community feedback on our proposal for a new pedestrian crossing on Massey Road in Mangere East. The crossing includes pram ramps, a central refuge island and new Broken Yellow Lines, making it safer and easier for people to cross the road.
Why the changes are needed
These changes are required as there are currently no crossing facilities along the length of Massey Road and an accident involving a pedestrian was reported at this location.
This project will proceed without changes to the next stage of detailed planning. A summary of the community feedback we received and answers to questions and concerns is below.
- Mention that the proposed pedestrian crossing removes the flush median, which is regularly utilised to access the driveways. Vehicle tracking has been checked, and confirmed for movements in and out of the nearby driveway access.
- A local business is concerned that the proposed broken yellow lines, which are accompanying the crossing, will remove customer parking. They have requested P10 signage outside of their business to ensure customer access. Limited time parking outside the shops at 328 Massey Road will be included in the final proposal.
This work is planned for November 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.
