This project has a construction target of October to December 2022.
We advised you in January 2021 that these works were scheduled to be constructed in the 2021 to 2022 financial year.
This project now has a construction target of July to December 2022.
In November 2020, we proposed to make some safety changes on Godley Road, Green Bay to make it safer for young school children and improve public access to shops. After reviewing all the feedback, we are proceeding with the works as proposed.
What happens next
We anticipate the changes will be constructed in the next financial year. We will be in touch with local residents and business prior to any construction taking place.
Thank you for helping us make better decisions for your neighbourhood, informed by your local knowledge. A summary of your feedback and our responses to community questions is below.
- Request for smoother speed bumps on crossing, particularly when exiting.
This proposal involves raising the existing crossing to a Swedish Style crossing. A Swedish style crossing has a gentler exit which gives a smoother ride for vehicles and passengers.
- Request for the same upgrade to be made to the crossing outside the school further west on Godley Road.
Thank you for your feedback. We will review this as a separate issue and investigate the possibility of an upgrade at this suggested site.
- Request to look into kerb drainage solutions to lead storm water past the raised zebra crossing.
Thank you for your feedback. We will ensure that these issues are looked into during the detailed design stage of this proposal.
- Request to install speed cameras on Godley Road to lower speeds.
For speed camera (safety camera) requests, please contact the New Zealand Police as the enforcement of speeding vehicles is their responsibility. The New Zealand Police, in conjunction with the New Zealand Transport Agency’s (NZTA) Safety Team and an independent transportation consultant, have a methodology for choosing sites which are suitable for speed and safety cameras. Generally, safety cameras are placed in areas where there is a problem with excessive speed and there is a proven crash risk or research shows a history of crashes causing death and/or serious injuries. View the police website for information about how sites are selected and where the cameras are being sited.
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 and we are asking for your views. To make it safer for young school children and improve public access to the local shops, we are proposing to make some safety changes on Godley Road, Green Bay.
The changes we are proposing:
- Install a zebra crossing on a Swedish-style raised table. A Swedish style speed table has one sharp ramp and a more gentle exit which gives a smoother ride for larger vehicles.
- Install a pedestrian island to break up the journey halfway across the road.
- Remove two parking spaces situated behind the nearby bus stop.
- Install yellow guidance paving markers to help visually impaired people find their way to the crossing and safely cross the road.
- Paint new road markings and install new signs to support the crossing.

Auckland Transport would like to work with you to deliver safer roads in your neighbourhood. Our investigations show a high level of pedestrian demand in this area, with majority of pedestrians being young school children. These changes aim to improve pedestrian safety for people walking to and from the nearby shops. Installing a speed table aims to slow drivers and make this a safer place to cross the road.
This project is funded by the Regional Fuel Tax.
