Mt Roskill Mt Roskill

We want to know what you think of plans we have to make it safer, easier and more enjoyable to walk around Mt Roskill.

We consulted on the Safer Communities programme from October to December 2017, and received 56 public submissions.

We are now looking for your feedback on the draft plan for Mt Roskill.

Public feedback closed Sunday 8 July 2018.

Project status: Consultation

Project zone: Central

Outcome of the 2017 consultation

Your feedback provided us with some strong areas of focus to help make Mount Roskill safer for walking. We have taken your feedback on board and we are now proposing to focus our work in two areas:

Frost Road and Carr Road

We want to improve conditions for school children and parents walking to and from the Mount Roskill schools along Frost Road and Carr Road. Traffic is heavy and the footpath is of poor quality. Design ideas include:

  • widening the footpaths.
  • new shared (cycle and pedestrian) paths.
  • raised table zebra crossings.
  • new trees and plantings.

We are looking at removing some on-street parking near the school gate and along Carr Road.

Mount Albert Road and Three Kings Intersection

We want to make Mt Albert Road safer for people walking around the area. We will have special emphasis on the complex intersection of Mount Albert Road with Hayr Road and Dornwell Road opposite the Three Kings Plaza Shopping Centre. Design ideas include:

  • new pedestrian crossings.
  • changes to road layouts and carpark entrances
  • new trees and plantings within the existing grass berm.

Our proposals would not change the existing on-street parking outside the shops.

From your feedback, we identified the following key themes:

  • No safe place to cross/crossing needed (17 responses) in a number of key locations to assist pedestrians and school children to cross busy roads and to calm traffic.
  • Concerns about traffic speeds (16 responses) posing a safety hazard to people walking in a number of locations across Mount Roskill.
  • Footpaths in need of repairs, maintenance or uneven surface (12 responses) making walking difficult and putting walkers at risk of injury.
  • Traffic volume and busy roads (10 responses), and illegal driving or parking behaviour (9 responses) inhibiting walking or making walking unsafe in a range of locations within this community.
  • Footpaths overgrown by trees and bushes (8 responses) preventing pedestrians from walking freely or safely were also identified.
  • Footpaths that are too narrow and need widening (7 responses) for safer pedestrian passage, near busy roads and along local school routes identified in various locations.

Public consultation

We are working in your community making it safer, easier and more enjoyable to walk around Mt Roskill.

Late last year we asked your community to tell us how we could improve walking. We asked about physical improvements we could make to help people walk more in the local area, how we could make it safer and how we could improve connections to places like local recreation centres, libraries, schools, and parks.

We received lots of good feedback and have used that feedback to create draft plans of the work.

After feedback closes

We will use what you tell us to make sure the changes we are planning are in the right places and to come up with more detailed proposals. We will come back to the community with detailed plans and consult with you in September (2018).
