In partnership with the Waitematā Local Board, Auckland Transport (AT) is making safety improvements around Fanshawe Street and Daldy Street. These changes will make it easier and safer for pedestrians and bus users to move through the area and connect with public transport.
- Moving the existing push-button pedestrian crossing on Fanshawe Street closer to the intersection with Daldy Street.
- A new push-button pedestrian crossing for Daldy Street.
- Red LED road studs on Fanshawe Street that switch on whenever the intersection traffic lights are red, as a reminder to drivers.
- Lengthening the Fanshawe Street bus stop (by Victoria Park) by around 15 metres. The shelters will be extended and repositioned to the back of the footpath.
- A new entrance into Victoria Park from the bus stop that links with the park’s existing paths. The entrance will be designed in collaboration with local iwi.

- A more direct connection between Victoria Park, the bus stop, and Wynyard Quarter.
- Safer and easier to cross Daldy Street.
- Reduced red light running, creating a safer intersection.
- Increased footpath area and shelter available to waiting passengers and passing pedestrians.
Plan of changes for Fanshawe Street and Daldy Street
Construction begins on Monday, 16 May 2016, with completion expected in early July 2016.
Hours of work will generally be Monday to Saturday, 7am to 9pm, however there may be occasions when contractors need to work outside these hours.
As a result of construction, noise levels will be higher than normal. We will try and minimise loud or disruptive activities as much as possible and will notify the community in advance of any after-hours construction activity.
