Project update 31 July 2019
Because 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 Station Road in Papatoetoe. The crossing includes pram ramps and a central refuge island, making it safer and easier for people to cross the road.
Why the changes are needed
This proposal aims to improve pedestrian safety as there are currently no crossing facilities along the length of Station Road and vehicles have been recorded travelling at high speeds.
This project will proceed without changes to the next stage of detailed planning.
Mention that this is an important road for those traveling to various locations across south Auckland; and this proposal would only work to increase congestion, and there are already sufficient pedestrian crossings in the area. There are limited crossing facilities in the area, and this makes crossing Station Road difficult. The new refuge provides better crossing choices for people on foot.
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.
