Safety improvements for Atkinson Avenue Safety improvements for Atkinson Avenue

Proposal status: Closed

Project overview

There have been 105 crashes on Atkinson Avenue in recent years (2014-2019). Sadly, this has resulted in 20 people getting hurt, some very seriously.

Some of the crashes have involved pedestrians being hit by cars when crossing the road. Auckland Transport is taking a Vision Zero approach to road safety. This means we are striving to have zero deaths or serious injuries on our transport system by 2050. Atkinson Avenue has been identified as a high-risk road and has been prioritised for road safety improvements.

By 2050 the population in Tāmaki Makaurau will be around 2.4 million.

Project details

To help prevent people from getting seriously hurt or worse, we are exploring road safety improvements on Atkinson Ave, between Princes Street and High Street.
