Rathgar Road, Henderson – Speed calming and bus stop changes

Consultation status: closed 18 April 2017

Read specific feedback we received on this consultation.

We are seeking feedback on 10 proposals in Rathgar Road. The central changes relate to the introduction of speed tables and both the upgrading and relocation of several bus stops. The proposal intends to create a safer speed environment, especially for the children attending the numerous schools in the area. The proposed speed tables will address speed issues along Rathgar Road while also increasing pedestrian safety. Following the same standard, the raised pedestrian crossing points with surrounding broken yellow lines will increase the visibility of pedestrians to drivers.

Please note, a plan to simplify the West Auckland bus network was consulted upon in late 2014 - for more details and maps of the new bus routes, please check out the New Network for west Auckland project.

As a result of the new network, the northern part of Rathgar Road will no longer have scheduled bus services from 11 June 2017. Accordingly, the scheduled bus stops in the northern part of Rathgar Road will be removed and a pair of part-time school bus stops will be installed. The broken yellow lines surrounding the remaining bus stops will be installed to ensure full bus accessibility.
