Proposal status: Feedback open until 12 October 2023
Reference number: MIP2122-027
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.
There is a new subdivision under construction in Clevedon that can be accessed using Mark Williams Place. This proposal is to provide a new raised zebra crossing adjacent to Mark Williams Place to improve safety for the people crossing North Road. This will also encourage drivers to slow down in the vicinity of this intersection, especially those travelling from the rural area towards Clevedon Village.
The changes in the proposal include:
- Installing a raised zebra crossing, raised to the height of the footpath, outside 31 North Road. The speed bump is flat and wide with a long off ramp. This makes it more comfortable for larger vehicles and their passengers.
- Removing the pedestrian crossing at Mark Williams Place and North Road intersection. A new berm will be planted in the gap.
- Adding side islands at the existing crossing outside 39 North Road to reduce the crossing distance for pedestrians.
- Painting broken yellow lines along both sides of the new raised pedestrian crossing and near the existing crossing to improve visibility. We understand this can be inconvenient, so we have minimised the removal of parking as much as possible while still improving safety on North Road.
What happens next
- We’ll listen to all the feedback we receive, and then decide the best way to move forward.
- We’ll post the outcome of this proposal and a summary of community feedback on this webpage.
This proposal is also supported by the Auckland regional fuel tax and minor improvements programme.
