Consultation status: closed 4 April 2017
We are proposing to make the following changes on Te Atatu Road:
- Rebuild existing raised zebra crossing to
ATCOP(Auckland Transport Code of Practice) standard.
- Relocate street lighting and
- Remove island.
- Install new directional tactile pavers.
Why the changes are required
We would like to bring the zebra crossing in line with
The proposal received mixed feedback with some concerns raised by respondents. After reviewing this feedback and other supporting evidence, the proposal will proceed without changes to the next stage of detailed planning.
We expect to introduce this work by June 20187, subject to further design changes or funding issues.
Contractors will notify residents 48 hours before construction work.
Concern that the proposal is located at an existing pinch point for cyclists.
Removing the central traffic island eliminates this pinch point and slows down vehicles, improving cyclist safety at this zebra crossing.
Concern that the proposal does not acknowledge the fact that Te Atatu is a key route on the Auckland Cycle Network.
Prior to the external consultation, our Walking and Cycling team confirmed that Te Atatu Peninsula is a key route on Auckland's Cycle Network. The team's comments were incorporated into design considerations and they are in support of the proposal.
