Henderson Valley Road, Henderson - Footpath upgrade Henderson Valley Road, Henderson - Footpath upgrade

Proposal status: Feedback open until 9 December 2022

Reference number: 20100465

We’re proposing improvements in your area  

We are addressing safety concerns raised by the community due to the lack of walking facilities along Henderson Valley Road in Henderson. 

 We are proposing to:

  • Construct a 550-metre footpath on Henderson Valley, from the corner of Misty Valley Drive to the section of existing footpath at 169 Henderson Valley Road.  
  • Paint broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) along the new kerb line as there is not enough room to park next to the kerb.  
  • Paint parallel parking spaces outside Henderson Valley Park to provide space for the new footpath and formalise the parking spaces.  
  • Prune large street trees to improve visibility.

This upgrade would provide a safe and continuous footpath along this section of Henderson Valley Road which would improve pedestrian safety and accessibility.

Henderson: Safe with us 

This proposal supports Tamaki Makaurau’s commitment to Vision Zero, an ambitious transport safety vision, with the goal of no deaths or serious injuries on our transport system by 2050. 

This approach acknowledges that as people we all make mistakes, however, a mistake 
should not mean someone dies or is seriously injured on our roads. It’s also an approach 
that values everyone using the road, not just those in vehicles. It is about caring for more 
vulnerable road users like people walking or cycling, children and the elderly. Vision Zero is the international benchmark for transport safety.
