We're proposing improvements in your area
We are proposing to improve pedestrian safety in Te Atatu South by upgrading the existing school-patrolled crossing to a raised zebra crossing and installing 2 speed humps along Roberts Road.
We are proposing to:
- Upgrade the existing school patrolled crossing in front of 69 Roberts Road to a raised zebra crossing that will allow school children to safely cross the road.
- Install tactile pavers at the approach to the crossing. Tactile pavers are yellow guidance paving markers that help visually impaired people find their way to crossings, and safely across the road.
- Upgrade the footpath outside 69 Roberts Road, at the approach to the crossing.
- Install speed humps outside 72 and 42 Roberts Road.
- Install signs and road markings to warn drivers as they approach the raised zebra crossing and speed humps.
As part of our region-wide pedestrian improvements programme, Roberts Road has been highlighted as an area needing safer pedestrian crossing facilities. Our proposal will prioritise the safety of school children who cross the road, given the number of crashes recorded in the area.
This is also in response to Freyberg Community School’s request to provide children a safer location to cross the road. The speed humps will guide drivers to slow down and be more aware of the low-speed environment near the school.
What happens next
- We’ll listen to all the feedback we receive, and then decide the best way to move forward.

This proposal is supported with funding from the Auckland regional fuel tax.
