Road safety improvements

To reduce vehicle speeds on local residential streets in Te Atatu South we installed a combination of speed calming measures such as:

  • speed humps,
  • speed tables (some may have zebra crossings),
  • raised intersections,
  • and entry signage.

Learn more about speed calming measures and their benefits.

Some parking was removed as a result of these measures being installed and some bus stops were relocated, see detailed plans.

The speed calming measures also enabled the speed limit in the project area to be reduced to 30km/h - as a part of the speed limit bylaw change.
