- Community has input on improvements to busy Kaipātiki intersection
- Traffic signal-controlled pedestrian crossings are being considered
Auckland Transport sought community feedback in March on a proposal to improve safety at the intersection of Glenfield and Coronation roads.
The two roads are busy arterial routes, and their intersection has high pedestrian volume and inadequate crossing facilities. The intersection has also been identified by Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency as a high-risk intersection because of its high rate of accidents.
In response to community requests, and working with the Kaipātiki Local Board, AT is proposing a safer crossing experience with signal-controlled raised crossings on Coronation and Glenfield roads and a raised pedestrian crossing on Domain Road.
Listening to what the community has to say can help AT make better decisions, so it can achieve the best outcomes for the community. So, over the past month AT has been taking feedback on the project, through a community consultation ahead of making decisions about the next steps.
Projects like this are another step towards AT’s goal of achieving no deaths or serious injuries on the roads in Auckland-Tāmaki Makaurau. AT is guided by the Vision Zero (Vision Zero for the greater good) approach to transport safety, which prioritises human safety over other measures (like minor time saving).
This project is part of a programme of high-risk intersection improvement initiatives funded by the Auckland regional fuel tax.
