Munroe Road, Ranui - New footpath Munroe Road, Ranui - New footpath

Proposal status: Feedback closed 12 May 2022

Reference number: FP1920-014

Proposal outcome

In April 2022, we proposed changes to improve pedestrian safety on Munroe Road in Ranui by installing a footpath from 11 to 47 Munroe Road. These changes will make sure people can walk safely in the area to access local amenities.

After reviewing all the feedback, we are proceeding with the work as proposed. These works will help support our Vision Zero goal. This proposal is supported with funding from the Auckland regional fuel tax. 

What happens next

We anticipate the changes will be constructed in August 2022. We will be in touch with local residents and businesses prior to any construction taking place. 

Community feedback

Thank you for helping us make better decisions for your neighbourhood, informed by your local knowledge.

The following is a summary of your feedback and our responses to community questions: 

  • Request for a proper and safer crossing at the Metcalfe roundabout
    Upgrades to this roundabout are outside the scope of this project however, they have been passed onto the relevant team for investigation. 
  • Concerned about visibility issues when exiting Munroe Road, especially at 35 Monroe Road
    The new footpath will extend the driveway closer to the road which will give a better view past the retaining wall. This will also remove the parking here which will remove the issue of parked vehicles blocking visibility when looking right while exiting the driveway of 35 Munroe Road.  
  • Requests to provide a single parking for residents next to the retaining wall outside 35 to 39
    We are only proposing to remove parking where necessary to create the footpath around the retaining wall. We are unable to both provide the footpath and retain more parking. 

We're proposing improvements in your area

As part of our works to keep Aucklanders moving, we are proposing to install a footpath from 11 to 47 Munroe Road, Ranui

We are proposing to:

  • Install a new footpath from 11 to 47 Munroe Road. The footpath will be slightly elevated to the height of the kerb line so pedestrians are clearly visible to drivers. This will also involve reinstating the grass berm for the new footpath. 
  • Install kerb ramps between the footpath and the intersections of Greenberry Drive and Munroe Road and Ferngrove Avenue and Munroe Road.  The kerb ramp will enable pedestrians to safely move between the footpath and across the road. Both kerb ramps will have tactile pavers, which are yellow guidance paving markers to help visually impaired people find their way to crossins and safely across roads. 
  • Paint broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) from 31 to 41 Munroe Road and on a small section to the left of 11 Munroe Road. This will remove a total of 8 on-street parking spaces.
    The broken yellow lines are needed to provide enough road width for passing vehicles, as the footpath will have to follow outside of the existing yellow retaining wall. 
  • Re-align the kerb line from 33 to 41 Munroe Road to follow the new footpath.

There is currently no footpath for pedestrians along this section of Munroe Road. We are proposing to install a footpath here so people can walk safely to access local amenities. The proposed changes will also ensure that pedestrians are clearly visible to drivers entering and exiting their driveways by providing a clear division between the footpath, the road, and private driveway entrances.
